Not only is felting good fun it is relatively easy too. Here is the wool that has been pulled apart and laid out to begin the process. I have used a deep blue as I am doing a mixed media painting which will incorporated blue arches. The painting is inspired by religious imagery and will include a gold cross which is also felted.
The felt – or soon to felt is covered with plastic and the air bubbles pressed out.
The felt is then rolled with plastic and an old blind! – and tied. The next step is to roll and again agitate the wool and soap so the felt binds.
The finished product!
