I know how felting "works" but sculpted felt always makes me do a double take. This piece is kind of awesomely mind blowing.

THank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

This is a Bas-Relief rather than full sculpture - I figured that worked better for a cuff.

Did a variation which took a lot longer to complete due to all the detail work.

Thanks so much!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

I started the Blue Ringed Octopus on Friday. I put in a good amount of hours then. I worked even more hours on it on Saturday and I didn't finish it until the afternoon yesterday - so probably something like 20 hours over three days to make this one.
