Just completed this ‘painting’ in wool fleece. It depicts some of the rugged coastline on King Island and was very challenging. In real time it is better viewed from a distance, but that is hard to simulate with a photo.
The base is a piece of white wool felt (commercial) and then the different coloured fleece are layered to create a picture. The options after that are to embellish with machine embroidery etc but I didn’t do that this time.
As I progress I keep everything in place using The Fabulous Felt-O-Matic – a handmade needle-felting tool that has 36 needles fixed into a frame work which is pressed down on in a spring set-up. Hard to explain, so here is the link to Dianne Stott’s blog showing her unique invention.
