Felting is soooo much fun, and lots of work too.
Layout is the key to having a piece turn out well. Here there is a background grid of almost same color wool as the silk. The silk is an iridescent lime green.
When fulled, the grid helps stabilize and balance the piece. I call this one hummingbirds on the vine, the grid looks like a very faint trellis in the now dry scarf.
This is a sampler piece for experimenting with various techniques. The silk fibers on top of wool worked out well. This piece was 5 feet by 18 inches to start with. Ended up being barely able to cover my chest when hanging around my neck. LOL. Good thing short scarves/cowls are very stylish!
I have posted visuals of the process, click the title (Nuno felting) above to go to the album.
