Look at these amazing and lively sculptures!
“Dear LivingFelt, I love your products!
The animal’s basic forms were made from your CW-1 Core Wool. The details in their colored coats were made using your MC-1 Monochrome and MC-1 Earth tone studio packs, and MC-1 Soft Pink was used for their noses and inner ears.
Your wonderful Lincoln Natural Sheep Locks in Natural Chipmunk, Black, and Gray Smokey were used for the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails, and the ram’s curls. They are lovely, full and tangle free. I haven’t found this level of quality from any other company. You are my sole resource for wool.
I hand sew groups of locks to make the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails and needle felt core wool in matching colors over the stitches. The ram’s curls are needle felted in over a core base with white core wool. His horn is handmade ceramic with a wire base needle felted in with your core wool and covered with curls in the center. Eyes are glass.
LivingFelt’s MC-1 Wool was used for all the animal’s eyebrows in the coat color, and black core wool was added on the edge as eye lashes and also on their mouths for soft smiles.
The needles used were your 40, 42, and 36 Triangle and 40 Spiral.
I worked the wool using your Earth Harmony Series 10″ x 15″ Needle Felting Foam, which had held up very well, is easy to clean, and provides a roomy work space.
Thank you again for the quality of your products.
As an artist, using the best helps me to do my best work.
