Mother and Child Blended Wool Picture
“Mother and Child”, Yuliya Chayka (in English letters) St. Petersburg, Russia
This week we share with you four different artists who have created art works on similar subjects, using four very different approaches to create a 2D work of fiber art.
“My dear friends!! On December 24, on the eve of the Catholic Christmas, two years ago my daughter Sonya was born!! This is the great Christmas gift) Probably, it’s no coincidence, I managed to finish my new woolen picture “Mother and Child” today!
Merry Christmas to all!”
This amazing “wool picture” is not felted. Yuliya hand blends the wool in small amounts and builds the picture up layer by layer until is framed under glass. She is using small amounts of fine Merino Top in tiny pinches. The process is much like that used for wet felting a picture, but she does not needle felt it or wet felt at all.
This image was shared in our facebook group – and there is a video (albeit in Russian) where she demonstrates her methods.
