My newest crochet pattern that I designed is called the Egg Head Mannequin pattern: you can access this pattern HERE.
The pattern uses #21 Twisted Nylon Seine Twine. You might ask where in the world do I find that?? Well, it’s easily found online on sites such as Ebay or Amazon. You can also find this type of twisted nylon twine at Marine shops for ‘netting’ products for a fairly affordable price.
I like to use nylon twine because it not only provides a firmer finished product, it can be hardened using products such as Ceramcoat by Delta; an All Purpose Sealer. I use this product as the initial hardening process and Ceramcoat also helps acrylic paint adhere to the nylon. I then use a few coats of Mod Podge glossy sealer. Hardened crochet mannequins are very durable and will last decades upon decades; plus they are 100% handmade!
You can find my pre-made Ready to Ship mannequin heads in my Etsy shop Thornwood Designs.
I will be posting tutorial videos here on my blog that will assist you in creating the mannequins in my patterns!
