bjd strung!

Righty here she is all painted and strung... I was originally just going to knot the elastic at the top of her head and secure it beneath skin level then clay over to hide... but I chose a heavier elastic and being 8 ends it just wouldn't be able to secure properly... so this morning I gave her a bit of brain surgery and cut off the back if her head and then drilled a couple of hole and threaded a solid brass pipe ... this is what I secured the elastic too... good lot of knotting and before I attach the back of her head I'll pop some superglue on the knots so they wont come loose.... so the last problem will be the fact the black leather is leaving smudgy black marks... this will take a bit of puzzling .... any ideas?
Okay so here are the pics :o))

    I have a headache looking at the poor girls head all strung up! She's coming along great....ooops (re Melissa's comment) was I supposed to actually read the post? I just look in awe at the pretty pictures! Hugs Naomi (who's off to read the full post and then I must away to the sewing machine or it'll go on strike!)

    Hi again....having read the post...what about spray on scotchguard (stain stuff! not sure what it'd be called over the ditch) onto the leather or that spray you use on suede to make it waterproof or pva glue watered down to make a coating over it? Other than those few suggestions, I'm out of my comfort zone or should I say Ball joint doll (as opposed to Ball Park!) Hugs Naomi
