1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Needle felted drill, with drill bit on: May 29, 2007 11:24:56 AM
This is my first stab at Needle felting, and I think it turned out pretty well. This project was used for a 3/D Design class final Fall of 2006. With some help of some of you craftsters, I was able to start and finish this project (sorry it has taken me so long to post).

I first took 3 sheets of 1 in. thick Styrofoam and glued them together.
Then I used different knives and blades to shape the Styrofoam into a drill.
I then took a piece of gauged wire and made the drill bit.
After that wrapped the whole thing and needle felted it.
The grayish roving I dyed myself, a first as well.

3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / need some help for a sculpture project on: November 27, 2006 02:30:30 PM
OK, I decided to needle felt a drill and drill bits for my 3D Design class.
My question is, do I want to use a wire structure and needle felt around that, or do I want to sculpt the drill from Styrofoam and then needle felt onto that? What do you guys think? Am I going in over my head? I am ok with needle felting, I have done some small things but this will be my first large project. We get bonus points for using something that previous classes have not used so I thought roving and needle felting was a good idea.

Well thanks for all of your help and I will post the completed project if I ever get it finished   Undecided

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Ist projet post...GO GO EMO RANGERS on: July 10, 2006 12:15:19 AM
My first stencil ever, pretty good I thought for my first one. A few mess ups here and there but nothing major, so I was happy.

Got the picture from their myspace (www.myspace.com/emorangers) luckily it wasn't to hard to turn into a stencil.
