When I hook our PRESIDENT'S...........LOL! I do love the challenge. I always want there to be no doubt who they are. I start with a portrait (George & Abe) or a photo for Barack. Then I move on to the colors, now for Barack I used both of my Spiced Up Tan's from my dye book for his skin.
I used my favorite boucle' for his hair. I used the same wool for Abe's beard and hair, and for George's hair. Three different dye formulas. George's hair was basic a drabbing down of this wool. Don't know what I will do when I run out of this wool .......lol.
I will be back soon for more........To be cont............
Ok, since I talk about it all of the time..lol! Here is a sample of the type of wool I like to use for hair, beards, etc.. I have it in cream, it is at least 80% wool and it takes the dye very well. It is perfect for sheep and other animals too! I used this sample because it looks just like the piece I used for Barack's hair and eyebrows.
P.S. I am an Independent voter! My hooking is totally a non-partisan thing! LOL! Had John McCain won, I would have been happy to hook him. I really like and admire both men and thank them for their service to our country.
