Ulrick the Goblin

Traduction Française ici
That’s his name. I hope Barbara won’t mind . This is my first needle felting experience, I had done a bit of wet felting last year and I promised myself to try this craft once more in depth. To dress this little goblin, I can’t believe I actually learned to knit and embroider. Normally I have no patience with needles. But I was swept from my feet right into a whirlwind of creativity, and it felt wonderful. And who would have thought that goblins could be fashion victims ? It’s like felt and embroidery belong together.

Once again, I broke some rules and mixed the two techniques, wet felting and needle felting. Wet felting goes much faster but the needle is better for details. Overall, I found needle felting really time consuming and very difficult, especially when it comes to faces. I’m surprised I managed to get rid of all the poke marks.  I found out that past a certain stage, it was better to cut all the fuzzies with some small scissors.

I’m eager to keep on the felting adventure but I have to finish first the painting I’m working on. And there is also the ceramic of course.
