Radal16,  Great bowl!  Am wondering if on can needle felt into the thin bits then finish with another wet felt polish.  Though, of course, one still must have matching roving/batt.   With the needle felted hats, I find one can  make a patch with a glob of wool that is thick in the center and feather out the edges of the patch,  needle all in lightly blending the featherd edges so they are invisible and then poke the center in firmly.


Lexis,  Oh Oh I see one of Teamwang's creatures using a chopstick to push the suschi boat across the table.

Thanks, GraceO.  I've got some more wool of a similar color I could needle in on the inside

Lexis, can't wait to see the new funky vessels!

miss wang- you crack me up. teehee.
okay- lotsa pics.  Smiley I did three in a combo of colours and fibres.
about 60% merino and the rest is a mixture of fibres like soy silk, bamboo silk, tencel, ramie, and some cotton/silk mix on the interior of the tallest vessel. the smallest green one has lotsa baby alpaca on the inside.

(of course all props to fyberduck for being my fibre stash swap partner  Grin and janeD for being the voyeuristic organizer.  Wink )
these were lots of fun to do and i have 3 more balloons filled up & sitting on my kitchen table looking like alien pods.  Smiley waiting to be wrapped up in fibre goodness.  
here we go:






thanks!!! hope you like.

lexis, those are magnificent!  lovely!  lovely!  lovely! 

The purple/blue one is especially lovely!





Here are my humble beginnings (sorta embarrased to post after all the beauty shown above   Embarrassed):



another one drying---really not lopsided, just the angle of the balloon:



Thank you so much for the tutorial.  It is so wonderful and complete and has completely got me happy about wet felting.

OH WOW!! 

Snacker - a great begining- the soft blending of color and the very neat rim.  This does not look like a first time piece.  Am thrilled to see what you are doing with the lexis tute.

Lexis - zowie, you are taking this process to wonderful heights.  Your color blending and detail grow exponentially with each vessel.  Wonderful wonderful art.
