4 lino or bubble wrap or plastic
ok draw an oval shape and divde into fourwith two lines 1 horizontal and 1 vertical
measure your head from back to chin –divide by 2 and write the measure on the vertical line eg 21″is mine =10.5″
measure head around above the ears divide by 2 and write on the horizontal line eg 22″is mine divided =11″
measure around the neck divide by 2 15″divided =7.5″#
measure from under your chinto hollow in the neck 6″ do not divide
ok now is the time to test your fibres and felt a piece 6″ by6″ now felt firmly then measure and work out the percentage of shrinkage .My fibres give a 50% shrink so I must now add this to my measurements .so ok
height =10.5 x50%=17.75″
around neck 7.5″x50%=11.25″
sorry this is all inches not metric but well I think in feet and inches .
now you have all the measurements draw this out on your paper a newspaper and felt tip is good
so we have an oval shape with a neck on you are noiw going to extend the top of the oval into a point about 2/3rds the length of the oval therfore mine will be 14″ which when felted down will be a7″point .
