Experiment with Felt

Another try with a bigger texture this time. I prefer the first one. But now, I know more or less what kind of texture would work best for embossing felt.

Experiment with Felt

I tried to wet felt (without soap so, no rinsing) over one of my ceramic textured plate and the result, although very subtle is interesting. I’ll make another textured plate with deeper indentations for next time.

A Goblin Guardian of Dreams

The whole costume is hand-woven, the head is made of paperclay (with glass eyes). I made the ceramic elements, bead and bird. The body is needle felted. To stiffen the felted collar, I used some fabric stiffener.

Brown and Teal

One of my favourite colour combinations. This will be used to dress the chilling goblin, along with the pink/red fabric.

A Goblin in the Making

A goblin chilling on my altar. The armature is made of wire and the body is needle felted (this is for me the longest and most boring part). The head is made of sanded paper clay. I painted the face with my favourite oils, Cobra (which you can dilute with water only and they dry pretty fast). His eyes are made of glass and of course, the hair will be added once he’s all dressed up.

Faerie Weaving

I’ve been weaving on my little loom to dress my latest goblin. The pink and red fabric is in two pieces because half-way, I had broken a few threads in the warp so I had to cut and re-tie them. This happens only when you behave quite unreasonably when choosing the yarn for the warp and opt for fragile yarns while hoping for the best. That will teach me (perhaps).

I adore these colors! I love my “Faerie” weaving!
