Dabbling Wednesday

This week I tried painting with wool. I had seen the finished product of this technique a few times before, but hadn't come across any instructions. And then I saw some rather simple instructions in a book called Creative Felt.

The first thing I did was draw a sketch on some cardboard.

Then I layed down the outline of the tree, branches, leaves, moon, and stars with wet wool. The main portion of the tree was made with dry fiber.
I covered the back with dry wool. Then felted the whole thing very carefully.

I'm very pleased with how it came out.
Earlier today I found a cool little frame at a charity shop, so hopefully tomorrow it will up on my etsy shop and on sale!
Anyone else do some dabbling this week?


  1. Wow, this is great. You know? I never thought to do it upside down. Makes so much sense. You needle felted this, or wet-felted it?

  2. It's all completely wet felted!

  3. It's really amazing, you must be very patient to do all the finely detailed work that you do.
