This is the first step in my new rocking nanny prop. This beauty will be rocking a baby in the nursery in our haunted house. I started with a basic wig head. You can see where I hollowed out the cheeks, eyes, and mouth and inserted the eyes. The eyes are made from a ping pong ball cut in half. The pupil was printed off of the Internet and glued in place.
From there I built up her facial features with tin foil taped into place. She was covered in paper mache fashion using paper towels to create the wrinkles. The hair was weave hair purchased off of ebay. I glued this in place using the same paper mache glue mixture.
Next I will build her body with pvc and a motor to make her rock.
