Upon disassembling it, I had to clean all the parts as the powdery foam was just so awful. Loads of brushing, and Dettol wipes did the trick. Loads of Glen 20 too...;;^^
Instead of foam, I've decided to use wadding instead to pad the mannequin parts. I think I've got foam phobia after seeing all the powdery brown foam...:P
I also used knitted jersey fabric with smaller patterns. The logic behind it is to give it stretch for easy pinning when the mannequin is in use. Smaller fabric pattern repeat is fantastic to make things easier when all the mannequin parts are back together. I don't have to match the fabric patterns! ^^
Anyway, this is one of my most major before and after project I've undertaken and I must say I'm rather pleased with the outcome. ^^
Have you done any similar projects? Do you have any tips that you can share with me? After the success of this, I can see myself doing more before and after projects. ^^
from me to u.
