Hey there,
Here is my first attempt in needle felting, I'm having a hard time getting the felt to be nice and smooth so that the details can come out better.  I tried wet felting but either I'm not doing it right, or the scale I'm working on is so small it can't help but have fuzzies
Any advice?
Thanks!

Welcome to felting boards.

A great general shape. 


Your surface issuces may be due to the type of wool used,  Some breeds and even individual sheep within a breed can have different textures, thickness, scaliness, crimp.  Also batt usually gives a rougher surface than roving.

Smaller needle size (larger # is smaller) also might help.  Many people finish with a #42

Have you read the basic needle felting tutes here on the D&Q board?  Lots of information on those.

Oh and many times it will be fuzzy, part of the nature of wool fiber in the close to raw stage.

Hope that helps.
