Striking Wet Felted Vessel for Fall Decor
Lovely fall decor for a your table or mantel — felted to perfection by Lynette Spaulding. Lynette is relatively new to felting, her first introduction to the craft was just 2 1/2 years ago; but her attention to detail in everything she does has helped her learn and progress very quickly for beautiful results!
This striking felted vessel was made with Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts. The first layer was watermelon, the middle layer was bamboo and Chocolate Brown was the outer layer. Cinnamon brown was added on the outer later in some areas showing a brown-orange blend. It was wet felted over a resist. After it was at the soft felt stage and removed from the template, small cuts were made with a razor blade to expose the green layer, adding contrast, dimension and texture. Once the piece was dried and shaped, needle felted accents were added. This gorgeous piece of fiber art was crafted with love for a charity auction.
