This is my finished twisted plastic piece for the Felting and Fiber Studio quarterly Studio Challenge. The twists are made from a blend of merino and plastic fibre made from recycled plastic bottles. The plastic fibre feels really fluffy and 'bouncy', it blends with the merino quite well. I've used it a few times before and it's great for creating 'spongy' effects. The base is 3 layers of merino, and the twists were layed on top so that the tips went over the edge of the base . The finished piece is nice and thick, but doesn't feel heavy, and it's really soft.
Hi, I'm Zed. I love colour, and textures and putting them together to make colourful texturey felt.
I'm relatively new to felting, so I'm still trying out lots of different methods and techniques and learning along the way. I mainly wet felt, but needle felt now and again.
