Latex Bald Cap and Long Hair for Full Head Cast

How to apply a latex bald cap to a subject with long hair in preparation for a full head life cast with ears out. This technique involves pulling the hair into a ponytail and wrapping it so it can be kept external to the bald cap, so that the cast can capture the head shape as closely as possible. This approach is best for creating head casts for dummy heads or for producing skull caps for animatronics.

This bald cap application also deals with how to modify a cap that is too large for the subject.
