Beautiful weather… low wind… a long weekend – definitely time to set up a table outside and start wet/Nuno felting.
I haven’t done a lot of wet or Nuno felting, so I started off with a small practice piece – I wanted to check how some of the different types and colours of roving felted and blended. I re-read a lot of instructions, took from them what I wished and ignored the rest, so that I could see what would happen working a different way.
I was trying to achieve a cobweb type of fabric, so I was working with fairly thin bits of roving. This piece was not on a silk chiffon base – it was only roving.
Once I finished placing the roving, the “fun” began… time to wet the roving, roll it up, then roll and roll until my arms and back hurt.
Here is how it turned out – see if you can find the fabric – it matches its background.
I also started a new project for the annual art show at my office, but that is a post for another day. 😀
