DIY Paper Wig Inspiration

I’ve had a number of friends and readers send me a link to the work of the Russian artist, Asya Kozina, (above) who has made a series of Baroque style wigs out paper. These Paper Wigs are absolutely exquisite! If you’re new to Lars, it makes sense based on the paper wig I made for my Marie Antoinette Halloween costume two years ago: Marie Antoinette paper wig

I did a bit more digging and found some more amazing paper wigs. Take a lookie below at all the incredible DIY Paper Wig Inspiration! Which is your favorite?

Floor treatment inspiration

My new studio space has wonderful wood flooring. Two rooms are a beautiful herringbone pattern and the other is plain vertical planking. I’m ACHING to paint on some black and white diamonds like this party scene on the plain planking and then keep the integrity of the herringbone with a wonderful stain. What do you think? Have you ever done either? Any tips?
