|Day of the Dead Design by Manuel Salas|
I've finished the orange flowers on either side of Belleza's earrings. The petals are bugle beads and the centers are needle felted. I thought you'd like to see how they turned out. This is the simplest needle felting possible but good practice for more complicated needle felting shapes. I'll try something a little more complex on another canvas.
If you are interested in other dimensional techniques such as those found in stumpwork, you will be interested in Kelly Clark's new stumpwork sampler canvas. There is a kit with the Ultrasuede you'll need and a booklet about the techniques as well as a painted canvas. (Be careful, though, as Kelly has several sampler canvases and you want your shop to order the right one which is KCA 021-18.) I don't know if the painted canvas, booklet and Ultrusuade kit are available separately or what the costs are. None of that information is available yet as this is so new, it's not on any shop websites that I could find.
