Subject: Wig


From: Louise Cone <louise.cone>

I am presently working on a sculptural installation from 1969. One
part of the sculpture is a reclining woman, made of painted plaster,
and wearing a synthetic wig. The wig has never been cleaned, and it
appears dull and matted. Has anyone had any experience in (dry)
cleaning of synthetic wigs? It is very delicate, and I am afraid of
removing it from the figure.
