Yet another needle felted creation.
I love tigers!!!
Same question as ~foxy-yazoo! Stunning!
Holy WOW... just, OMG that's amazing! How did you get the body to look so smooth? The transition from the neck to the chest is just AMAZING, and the stripes are SO well done! I'm so faving this XD
Wow amazing, how do you get it so fine?
cool how do you make it felt tipped.
Beautiful job - I love the details!
Oh thanks. Needlefelting is really fun to do, but I found I am allergic to wool, or at least the lanolin, so I am trying to find an alternative fiber at the moment.
I needle felt for a hobby, myself. Being allergic to the lanolin would certainly put a damper on things. I don't know of any alternate fibers for felting, though, unfortunately.
Actually I've tried alpaca and it worked. It doesn't felt as easily, and I doubt you can wet felt it very well, but needle felting works fine. Mohair also works, but it's quite as good as the alpaca.
that is really awesome.
Stunning needlefelting! Such detail! How big is he? and How did you manage the fluff around his jaw and ears?
Thanks! Um I think he was about 4 or 5 inches high. The fluff just came from felting one end of a tuft of wool in and leaving the other end sticking out. Then trimmed to size.
wow! that is so cool!
Did you felt the stripes in or did you paint them? Wonderful and stunningly detailed Julie!!!!
OMG Now this fellow must have taken some time...eh?
How pretty! It's so delicately detailed, too. Bravo!
you must have a huge amount of felt , very well done, i've never tried needle felting before but my mum tells me its hard
