My latest needle felted piece is based on a photo I took a few years ago near Hightown, Merseyside. It's where the River Alt estuary meets the sea along the Sefton coast. I played around with the photo a little:
I started out making a wet felted background to work on:
Then needle felted it with Merino mixed with texturey wools like Icelandic. I used a bit of silk and bamboo on the river and cotton fibre for the clouds.
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.
