hand needle felting panting
Hand needle felted wool painting. "Whooooo's There??" shows a small owl peeking around an old tree trunk. I used many shades of browns and blacks and grays to create the details in this picture. The background is a nubbly 100% wool felt. Ready to hang, it has a completely finished back with dust cover and picture wire. Frame measures 10x10.
Needle felting is a totally dry process in which loose, dyed wool fibers are repeatedly stabbed into a background using special small barbed needles. The constant movement tangles the fibers firmly into position. Framed without glass to enhance the texture, it requires no special care -- simply an occasional flick of a microfiber duster.
