1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / protecting felt from water and other elements on: July 07, 2014 12:42:47 PM
Hi there I am new here........I have a question?........I finish felting  a 3d figure and I don't want to retain its cloth type because dirt, moist and other elements I want to protect it and I want to make it hard or stiff........we all know that if you paint cloth with paint, glue or acrylic the cloth will turn stiff.....so my question is what are the best to make this happens and to achieve my goal.......

and by the way my felted 3d object has only 1 color because after I achieve my goal to stiffen or make it hard (the first question) I will apply some primer stuff to make it smooth and will sand it then paint it (like I said I don't want to retain the cloth soft properties)................does this applicable or there are other ways to make it happen.

if you look at what I am trying to do is like what ceramics or polymer figure out there ( I know you will say just make it with polymer clay or use clay if you want some figurine stuff..........I just wanna know if my plan is applicable to felted 3d objects.....

thanks in advance
