The Headwrapping School crafts its products from the very best materials available in the field. We use high quality old newspapers and duct tape. The scissors are imported from China. Only the finest of used cardboard is acceptable.
The scissors are used to cut the cardboard which is then manipulated into the form of a shoe. Duct tape is then implemented to secure the frame.
Next, newspaper is torn into strips and dipped into a paste made from bleached white flour and water. Then the strips are 'wrapped' around the shoe frame.
The shoe is turned and wrapped on its side.
The inner shoe is wrapped and the wrapping then secured by the thumbs.
The index finger is used to form the front inner shoe.
The pinkie is used to detail the inner toe.
The heal is held in one hand while the outer toe is wrapped by the other.
The inner heal is wrapped and secured.
The outer heal is wrapped and secured and the wrapped shoe is set to dry.
After the shoes are dry they are ready to be painted. The finest house paint seconds available will be used.
