A few more shots of Cedar being alternately sweet and fierce. To think we’re getting an HTP version of her fills me with indescribable joy.

I had an ask about the rerooting tool I made, so I figured I’d take a few photos and reply this way.  The basic idea isn’t anything new (like the first photo, an Exacto blade tool from Dolly Care).  It’s a thing with another, smaller, thing stuck into it >_>.  Basically, you clip open a sewing needle and either insert that into a dowel or Exacto blade base.

I had two problems with this, though.  One: Most premade tools are a Y shape, which is kind of hard to get cleanly in the vinyl head.  Two: There’s nothing to really grip onto in either of the most popular designs (the Exacto ‘grip’ is basically a cheese grater =_=).  Which leads to me exerting more pressure with my fingers.  It sounds stupid and small, but that exertion plus hundreds of pokes wreaks havoc on my hands (and arms, stupidly enough).

I got fed up with it and decided to see if I could make something that would be easier for me to use (my tool is the bottom two photos). 

InstaMorph is a tub of plastic beads that you heat up to make pliable and then once it dries, it’s rock hard.  I formed a bit of that around the needle and pressed in to make finger grips. 

Instead of using a Y shape for the needle, I made a shape more like a seam ripper (with one part of the Y longer than the other).  I curved the ends inward with needle nose pliers to make it easier for the tool to poke through the vinyl.

I made the tool shorter so that instead of using my fingers to push through the vinyl, I could use the ball of my hand which is less sensitive.  The indented grips also help as I don’t have to hold onto the tool nearly as hard to keep my fingers from slipping.

I still don’t think I’ll be attempting any full reroots, but this little adaptation has made it much easier for me to do things like adding lashes and highlights :).
