So this was my first time ever making wet felt.  It didn't go too badly except that i tried to add an extra layer late in the process and it didn't take very well resulting in large thickness variations across the piece of felt.  It turned out pretty well though and I definitely see more felt in my future (although I will wear a coat next time I beat it on the porch in -20 weather  Roll Eyes).

Without further ado here's what I did with my felt, I chopped it up for the sake of a piece of art for an upcoming event at my church.  It's my ode to the CBC.



It's on a 10x10 canvas I painted black.  It's not perfect but i am happy with how it turned out.

Here's a close up of the felt (the first image is a little more true to colour).


Thanks for looking.

Thank you all for your kind words.  I am really glad it's recognizable as I was worried no one would know what it is.
