a whole lotta synths

Post by luftkissenmixer » Mon Jun 07, 2010 10:58 am

hallow im kathi, I havent posted to much yet since im afraid that my english isnt perfect and i had to take my time to get used to the technical terms in dread making.

ive been making dreads for a year now and i do also install them. The problem is that there are not more than maybe 5 people in austria that do also make synthetic dreads so i have very few people that can actually critique my stuff, knowing something about the matter.

i steam my dreads with a steam ketlle and i backcomb them using a lousecomb from metal :) the teeth break every three monts but there are nearly not gaps between them wich i find very helpfull.
i also use a drill machine to tighten the dreads over the steam. Thats why i only make se`s.

btw does anyone have experience in making de´s with a drill-machine? Is that possible?

i took some pictures of dreads i made, they are like a month old and i kept them in a dread-mess without having them put together neatly or anything so they are a little wrinkeled (hope thats the right term). i use iks only and this is some red they have that is really poofy and strawy, forgot wich number it had:

thats how the silky colours come out:

and here are some iks mixed blonde ones:

i do also crochet hook dreads (i mostly use them to extend human dreads because it takes me half an hour to hook one and if one wanted a whole head i would have to make 90 or something and thats inaffordable ^^)

Image

some installs:

thanks so much for looking and im looking forward to your critique :)

really great stuff.
Only think i can maybe suggest is a little more back combing near the loop.
Other than that they are looking quite amazing.

I'm not a pro (I'm working on it :i2: ) but I think they look really good.
