Can't explain how much I love making the alien pods . I think it is because I don't know what they are going to look like before I begin . I just pick colors I like and start felting, then certain colors pop out as the inner seed, inner skin and husk and I needle felt accordingly . I maybe the only person these appeal to...I have no concept of others "tastes", but I love the color and texture contrasts and just the thought they they could sprout some alien life forms . I plan on wrapping these in copper wire and making some necklaces with beads and others with needle felted ropes .
Also, a few more eggs for my Etsy store, (that I am having a lot of trouble photographing due to lack on sun lately ). I have checked on Etsy and not seen anything quit like I am making and wondering...once again...if that is because it is to weird to appeal to "normal people" who just want a sweet pastel egg with some spots on it . Not that there is anything wrong with traditional egg dying colors but it just seems a waste of the wonderful potential of needle felting/color blending . Maybe it only appeals to my eyes...(beauty being in the eye of the beholder and all that ) .
Ona side note, I like the egg for contrast and sizing and am thinking off adding it to all my pics for my shop...maybe writing my store name on it ???
