*** Work in progress *** Yes, still at work on my Ofrenda of wool. This project has a lot of bigger, more unusual, needle felt pieces, but the biggest issue is how to make loads and loads of the traditional flowers you see overflowing on a ofrenda. My needle felted flowers can take 2-3 hours each and I might loose my patience just doing hours of the same flowers, so I sought out a method to replicate the tissue paper Marigolds you see on traditional altars. Taking paper a very light material, that is thin, and stays in place when folded is very different from felt, which has none of these qualities was tricky, but I think I might have come up with a method that can mimic the effect pretty well, and I hope speeds some of this process along, and will give me the end look I am hoping for.
Forgive my paper flower my child decided it was hers for a while and it got a bit mangled lol#marigold #wool #felt #feltarts #woolarts #bristolartist #bristolmaker #handmade #flowers #woolflowers #feltflowers #workinprogress
