Nice Job, but im curious how you got it in there. Did the fingers just push in down the channels left by the wires??

It certainly givers her fingers a more realistic form with the bulges at the knuckles

Thanks guys. Summer is doing well this morning. Her incisions are solidly healed.

Karrot, we cut into her palm with a sharp pair of pointed scissors. The fingers were removed individually and they don’t come out with a simple pull. We applied upward pressure with vice grips while slowly ‘peeling’ back the TPE. Tried several methods but using your finger nail worked best.

The hands look so much more natural. Can’t wait to see how they look posed for photos.

You've done an absolutely wonderful job on those hands.
The finger shape looks far better and more natural with those MF hands, I really must invest in some next time, rather than being such a cheapskate using whatever wire I can find in my garage.
Interesting you say you found it difficult to pull out Summer's wires, I struggled with Gingers and Holly's both WM157b's the other two dolls I decided I was going to attack, the wires just easily pulled out, but those were inside a sleeve rather than wrapped in an annoyingly long length of some sort of string.

What did you use to close the cut in the hand ?

This is fantastic.

Really we need Tommo to get up to speed on this upgrade because:
a) He has over 60 hands to do
b) I have already changed my delivery address to Tommo Mansions so that
the hands are upgraded before they even reach me. I do not think I am the only one!

Thank you Tommo. It takes a bit to get used to the new shape but we agree, it looks more natural. Another plus, her ring doesn’t fall off now that she has knuckles!

Yes. That string is nasty and clingy. Sleeves would have been much better and faster. I think that was the longest part of the process.

We used the 3M 94 Tape Primer to seal the incisions.
