Recent Pieces:

I finally got photos of the piece I showed being laid out a couple of weeks ago. It was dark purple in the middle with black at each end, and I used lots of different natural fibres on it:

I like these photos on an angle:

I think this was tussah silk:

And this is soy fibre:

My friend had some hair ‘decoration’ things that she was throwing away after using, so I thought I would see how they felted πŸ™‚ She had plaited (braided) them into her hair, I forgot to ask if they came wavy or not. I used some wool tops I got in a bag of Botany Lap waste. It’s a natural grey colour, but has the odd bit of Angelina fibre blended in. I couldn’t see any, though:

You can see better from this angle how they attached:

Where it was thinner/spread out it really blended in:

I liked how it looked where it was thicker:

I don’t know what the wool is, it’s really soft, and the colours look like a blend of grey and oatmeal Bluefaced Leicester. This is the back:

But the edges are like a breed with curlier locks:

Have you tried any new or unusual fibres or embellishments lately?

  1. Looks great, Zed! Have you ever done some “open lace” felting, where you can still see the locks and nothing else, like cobwebs? I think I’ve seen it once and loved it.

      Thanks, Leonor πŸ™‚
      Yeah, I’ve done cobweb felting (as I’ve always known it) a few times. Some by accident!

    The first piece is really nice, I like how you can see the differences in the various fibers. What do you think the hair decoration is made out of? I haven’t used any unusual embellishments in a long time. Not much time for any felting at all 😦

      I don’t know about the hair decoration, it feels more plasticy than nylon. If I do any dyeing, I’ll test it.
      Same here, the well being centre is the only time I’ve got chance lately.

  3. What a difference between the pre-felted and felted photos! The waves are gorgeous.

  4. A nice collection of curly samples! It’s fun to experiment with different fibers.
