Fiery but Adorable RED Needle Felted Dragon!

Needle Felted Red Dragon by Shelly Schwartz on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Shelly Schwartz makes some pretty darn sweet sculptures out of polymer clay and more recently has been applying her skills and creativity to needle felting. We love this needle felted dragon made with Living Felt MC-1 Felting batts!

“I was so impressed by my daughter’s computer drawing of a red dragon, that I felt I must make him into a sculpture.

He was sculpted from true red and mahogany MC 1 batt wool. He has a wire armature throughout his body and wings to help him stand and pose.Ā  His teeth were made from polymer clay and he has black glass eyes.

Thank you for the inspiring emails every Saturday. I look forward to seeing what others are creating every week.”

Needle Felted Dragon – a Gift of Love and Protection

Needle Felted Purple Dragon by Caprice Willert on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Caprice Willert Needle Felted This Gorgeous Purple Dragon as a Token of LOVE.

“I made this dragon for my sister Tracey as a going away gift. She was moving out-of-state
and I wanted her to have something to watch over her.
She loves dragons and the colors purple and pink.

This was my first large armature. He is wired from head to toe,
including the wings. He’s 20″ long x 12″ tall. I used some pre-felt to start
the structure of the wings and then added the colors on top. I used a toothpick to wrap
the wool and make the various horns. I used Wild Berry and Berry Picken’
for the body colors. I wanted the colors to have variegation in the wool.
I used those bits of colors to add additional hues. The eyes are glass.
I used them because they were glittery and the pupils were slits.

I really had fun making it and she loved it, which was what counted.”

-Caprice Willert, California
