Needle Felted Mermaid Wall Hangings
Anne Zimmerman Wins a $25 Gift Certificate for LivingFelt.com!
This lovely and serene felted painting of a mermaid was created by Anne Zimmerman of New York.
She used Living Felt MC-1 Batts in:
“I love to do needle felting as a painting medium. It is so relaxing…very portable 🙂 , and so tactile.
I try to achieve a “watercolor” effect with the fibers…by blending and..swirling the colorful fibers onto a piece of felt. I can achieve surprising shading by layering dark over light or light over dark. Living Felt has an incredible array of colored wool to choose from, and I am so pleased with the interest you take with your customers….your community of felters. It is so nice to be a part of a larger community.”
This is a needle felted painting that I did recently after “experiencing” my 50th birthday. It was therapeutic for me to work in this particular medium and immerse myself in the beautiful colors of the wool. After completing the painting …it felt “cathartic” for me. And turning 50 didn’t feel so monumental or scary anymore. I always purchase my wool from Living Felt…the quality can’t be beat. I used lemon peel, cadet [Egyptian blue], and indigo MC-1 batts to name a few.
