When I can make one of these....(When you can snatch this pebble from my hand Grasshopper....)then I know I will have achieved some needle felt proficiency....until then....Here is a felter that I just found on Etsy that has some very amazing and inspiring work that you will enjoy for it's clean lines, great color and especially diversity of design .
I have not gotten to the phase where I feel confident enough to use resists to make hats, bags, vessels, slippers...... but one of these days......maybe tonight , I am going to force myself to try .
I HAVE finally tackled roving dying and did not felt it while dying....Yea! I will try and get pictures of how that worked out tomorrow and write a bit about my experience with this new process and a few things I read while researching the topic on-line . Although the result was what some call "muddy" and I call "organic"....(mud is VERY organic by the way) . I do like the end results and hope to get better with more practice .
I have also done some wet felting with my newly dyed roving and some of the Mill Ends I recently bought and will give two sources I thought are worth trying if your interested in experimenting with dying .
