Has anyone used a WonderWash or something similar for fulling their felt?

I use rocks to shape my felted specimens and it is not a good thing on the washing machine but it looks the best. If anyone can think of a light weight alternative let me know. I am testing Crayola Model Magic.

I have never heard of this product before. It seems like it would work well for felting.

I would suggest some sort of plastic, but I can't really think of anything that would have the variety of shape (like rocks do) that you would need. How did the model magic go?

Does putting them in a pillow case before the washing machine help?

Have you checked the aquarium section of a pet store? They often have plastic aquarium 'gems' that may work. Or they may have other lightweight 'stones' for you to use.

I wonder how Sculpey would perform in place of rocks...might be worth a try. It might need to be sealed with some sort of marine varnish...hmm...
