I am always amazed how many colour changes there are during the production of a piece of felt; from light, airy, dry fluffy tops,
to dry fixed and solid wet felted pieces, via athe soggy soapy stage!
The most impressive examples of this would have been my recent 'brown pieces'... if I had taken pictures of the original fluffy dry step.....I only remembered when gazing at the extremely dark and damp felted middle stage!
This is how light it is when dry!
I'm not sure which way up?
I love the wiggly alpaca!
Both this and the other study in brown will be winging their way to the next stage of transformation very soon!
Not sure if you can 'frog' a blog, but this one has been deleted and edited several times!!
Hope you all have happy and peaceful weekends - dodging the predicted showers!
As the background is so busy the alpaca has got a bit lost visually although you can feel it and see it up close....so I intend to make another piece to show it off more ....and then both will be given to the friend who gave me the alpaca for her to weave her sewing magic and transform it into something else!!
I originally intended to create tree bark...and it reminds my friend of a stream (there's quite a bit of green in there - in real life)..isn't it great how we all see things differently?!!
