Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/jmEuhFzr)


Many people think they know how to create a veil, but do they really? Did you know a veil canbe blocked? DId you know there is a specific block that was made for this purpose? This is an old technique that does not get used often any more and should be.

After finishing off your very own veiling block, (which you keep) I will show you how to block both a full face and half veiling and a cage veiling. The course also includes wiring techniques for making a custom alice band and prongs. Both of which are incredibly useful for custom creations and event headpieces. Also working with a new veiling product in two patterns.
