I took a class with Cindy Losekamp called "Shimmering Landscapes." We started with a picture like this:
We then laid the chiffon on a piece of wool batting and selected some bits of combed wool. We also used a few strands of a shimmery threadlike substance called Angelina.
Then we just laid the wisps of wool and the chiffon and started poking it with this bad boy:
Eventually, the fibers were felted into the chiffon and this is what I made:
Not too bad for a first try!
Here is the original beside my interpretation:
Stay tuned for more felting and for the big unveiling of the hand dyed scarf I made. It is still dying!
