I've been trying to make animals.

hm, ok.  3d needle felting can be tricky to do at first...you want to make sure that you don't stab one part of your roving totally flat (which is not hard to do if you're not careful.)  i wish i could put it into words how i do it when i sculpt a critter, but it's difficult sometimes.

spillyjane, I've never done any needle felting...so this might be a silly question.  How do you keep all the various pieces together?  Are they glued together?

they're not glued, they're all felted together.  glue might make the piece more secure, though...but i've never tried it.

i think you'd be best sticking with needling them together spillyjane. i'm thinking the roving might be too porous for glue, and it would weigh the wool down.

yeah, i suspect you're right.  i would be leary of applying any type of liquid to a needle felted piece.

the banana and the dish are somewhat fluffier than the other pieces that i do, yes.  i think it adds to the oddness of making food out of wool--you can't mistake it for plastic or clay or anything else.  the birds that i make are much more tightly felted.
