Always when I'm floating around on the internet
I find new interesting things and ideas.
Quite some times I'm amazed
what people are making :
so many beautiful things are being made !
In the "felting business" I like very much what Gabi is doing :
I love her animals and "persons"
they're friendly and funny !
( I love it when people put some humour in their art,
like Annette Quentin-Stoll who wrote two wonderful books about felting )
I did my first try-out on figures a few days ago :
a little chicken
... and admired Gabi's work a lot more after that !
She gave a lot of good advise on her site
( but I had to cheat at the comb and the tail :
sorry, I used a felting needle ...! )
Although this wet-felting figures technique isn't quite so easy
I had another go today.
... started wrong, cheated again, this time with thread and needle ...
... had some better wool to fit all together ...
( a lot depends on the kind of wool you work with ! )
... and here the little fella finally was after some good hours of work
in his own soapy swimming pool !
I like him ( her ? )
although there isn't a real face yet.
That will come later
( and hair and cloths ofcourse .... )
