I have seen several vendors on etsy who sell hand felted items with polymer clay accents glued on. For example, a needle felted unicorn with a polyclay horn and hooves. Has anyone here tried this? I'm just curious how densely felted the item has to be for this to be effective. What type of glue do you use? Are the results fairly stable? Thanks!

Think all-purpose glue.  Your items to be glued need to accept the type, and the felt does as well.  Actually a densely felted object is important whether you glue items on it or not.  The more you work with it, the denser it will become.  Then, the glue used should be something that will work on both mediums.  I think that you might get away with hot glue.

I use polymer clay for the noses on my felties.  I attach a wire before baking it, then once it's baked I push the wire through the head and then bend the end of the wire back into the feltie...then I cover the wire with a little roving and felt it in to hide the wire.  I imagine you could use the same technique for a unicorn horn and for hoofs too.  Smiley
