NEEDLE FELTING CONTEST ENTRY~FAIRY DRAGON~by NINA

fairydragon3

well the dragon is just titled “Fairy Dragon” it’s about 8″ tall needle felted wool over soft sculpt body with fimo gel wings (I made the wings too).  I’ve been felting for a little over 2 years now.  This dragon was a custom order piece.  I love dragons & fairies so the combination seamed like a perfect idea.  I love all things fantasy and whimsical :)Thanks again,

  1. This is a lovely fantasy piece! Love the sparkles in the wool and the needle felted eyes! The wings are beautiful. The colors and curls are perfect! The individual blue scales must have taken a while to felt! This sculpture must have taken many, many hours! Thank you for your entry! Happy Felting!!

  2. Ah thanks! I think I worked on this dragon for over 3 months. The belly scales did take forever but I think it was worth it. I blended in angelina fiber in the wool to give the sparkles!
