Been seriously neglecting the blog posts..

Hello everyone! I'm sorry that I have not posted anything in the last few weeks, even though it's my priority to keep this blog updated :/ I hope to post regularly from now on but I always say that but anyhow I have made hands for my girl armature YAY! Here's some pictures :)

To start off, I did some wet felting to make a single sheet of blue felt that I would use to cover the hands.
I will give a full explanation of how you can do wet felting in my next blog post!

I cut a small section of the blue felt from the sheet I made and needle felted it around the wire frame of the hand.

As you can see it works extremely well in covering the hand. I continued to needle felt around the fingers and palm until the hand is completely covered so it looks like...


The felting still needs to refined afterwards to make it look a lot presentable, but the great thing about needle felting is you can always come back to it later on :)

  1. Hi Amy! I know what you mean about wanting to post more often and then not doing it, I'm terrible for it so I can sympathise!
    It's great to see your characters start to take shape (literally!) I'm really looking forward to seeing more!
    Kind regards, Brian.
