Nice! Isn't embossing fun? I love to watch the powder transform, like magic. :-)

I like the idea of harpies, because it reminds me of Harpies' Bazaar, the magazine Endora read on the 60s show Bewitched! ! :-)
4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: adding small / fine detail? on: January 12, 2009 11:46:50 PM
Kitty, an eye with three parts sounds really tricky!!

What I do is take a very teeny amount of roving (like 1/4 of a pea!), rub it between my hands, "let out" a tiny string of it (made of several fibers, part of the larger clump), and poke that with a fine needle, into the base shape. I don't really pay attention to individual felting needle gauges-I haven't found gauge to matter much.

Okay, I don't think that's the world's best explanation, sorry! :-) But please let me know if you have any questions on it.

What's tricky with working that small is that once you've got the small amount of roving, it can disappear into the base shape (animal, whatever you are working on) w/your needle! So I'd love to hear others' thoughts/ideas on this as well!

Ln, I have found it really useful to use a mixture of wet felting and needlefelting. Each has properties the other doesn't!

I'm considering buying some felting needles and needle felting to make it a little stronger.  Either that or soaking it in straight liquid starch or glue.

Even better than the ShamWow! ;-)
Environmentally-friendly, too--you said you use them in the shower--so much better than those plastic sponges they sell!

Very cute and colorful!
