To talk of many things:
Of shoesand shipsand sealing wax
Of cabbagesand kings
And why the sea is boiling hot

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Hi

This is Johnny, Danis boyfriend here to answer a few questions.

I am glad you all like Singe.
He is actually a gargoyle like those found on old medieval churches here in England. He is of the cat-bat variety. He 8 inches tall, 18 inches nose to tail with an 18 inch wing span.

He is my first felting project and took about 90 hours of work. I broke about 20 felting needles and stabbed myself at least 50 times.

Everything is felted (the eyes also). The body contains a metal skeleton made from wire twisted around nails (hence so many broken needles) and then wrapped in wool yarn to give a surface to needle felt to.  The horns, claws and teeth were wet felted then dipped in PVA glue to make them hard. The wings were wet felted flat sheets cut to shape and needle felted onto the wing frame. The feet were the most difficult part to make, as the bottom of the feet have pink pads like a cat and the toes are so thin. The wire in the frame also kept breaking so I had to cut him open and replace it.
 
I am an artist, although not established yet in any way. I am currently studying visual communications - a design course. Check out www.johnnycordner.c om if you interested in landscape painting.




since Johnnys info was hidden back in the pages am quoting it here so those of you clicking on from the featured projects can find it easily.  Singe is the first felted project to make it into featured items and all of us "felty folk" are bursting with joy!  Hugs to Johnny for sharing his brilliant work.
