I can imagine that it is to some degree. Probably more after the adhesive backing melts once it's actually ironed on. [/QUOTE]

Hmm...well, okay.
Let us know how it goes.
Truly never thought of that.
I am still recovering from my "turtle" incident in Florida last year.
I want to find a good way to wear a closure. But mine has to be behind the hair line.
What about you? Do you plan on putting yours behind your hairline? If so, will you start the patch a few centimeters back so as not to have a line of demarcation from the patch?[/QUOTE]


well just to be safe I just researched a bit on twill iron on patches and I found this: 

"Twill material is a light weight textile weave with diagonally patterned ribs that gives the fabric more strength and durability. The diagonal ribs give the fabric its durability by making it heavy enough to be resistant to tears and wrinkles and at the same time twill material is light, water resistant and breathable. Twill is therefore ideal for making curtains handbags upholstery and clothing"


And yes I do plan on leaving a small amount without the iron on because I plan on gluing it down. I'm used to using adhesives because I usually wear lace wigs.

Sounds interesting.
I would wonder how it would behave should it come apart.
I also wonder how the adhesive might change the root hair of your closure.
Let us know how it works out Alisha.
I've been itching to do something new, but not trying to look like Lt Worf.

I will definitely be back. I'll try it on a small piece of lace first. My biggest fear is melting the lace some how. But I'm adventurous so I'll be experimenting a lot with weaves and closures till i find something i like. It only took me 9 years to get my lace wig applications right lol

Alisha-
Cool experiment! I see that the closure was pretty inexpensive (so no huge loss) but I want to remind that an iron on patch has a function of patching a hole or an area of wear. It is supposed to substitute for missing material or material whose integrity is compromised--as well as be strong enough to keep the remaining surrounding area in tact. All this to say that, while described as lightweight, it might be very, very stiff. You may have blending issues and/or an overly stiff non-flexible "scalp" that is difficult to place, keep flat and makes nourishing your hair underneath a real challenge.

I know. I thought about all that while I was picking out a patch at the store. I don't think I'll have too much issues but only time and trying it out will tell. The patch it's self is very thin almost as thin as the lace (maybe I should of took a pic) it light and seems to be flexible. But that could change as soon as heat hits it. I did decide though to only cover the inside and not the edges because I'm not sure how well a needle would go through once it's been adhered to the lace. On YouTube the girls who sew the patch on had no issues going through it and even said they had no issues with install even though it looked more bulky then what I intend. They stated that the closure still behaved like a lace closure. But I don't really believe that.

Why don't you use a silicone sheet that is beige colored? That way you get scalp color and can hide the grids of the lace
