I am trying to figure out how to add curls to the poodle I have needle felted. It’s an off white color replica of my brother’s dog (carefully following all your armature and core directions-it’s firm and ready for curls). I can’t find anywhere info on
1) what wool roving/locks to buy and
2) how to attach them without ruining the curls.
You do it beautifully. Could you give me a couple of tips and/or point me in the right direction so I can finish this project? Thanks very much in advance!
Thank you for your question!
Curly wool is fun to use on felted aniamals. I like to use poodle curly fur for the fur on Poodle sculptures. When you felt on curls try to felt the areas in between the curls so they aren’t flattened. I did the fur on this Poodle sculpure ALL with poodle fur. I didn’t mix it with anything else as I didn’t want to disturb the tiny curls in the fur. Just felt in a little at a time. This poodles fur was exceptionally fine so it was a little harder to felt in than wool but the results are worth it! Plus it adds a personal touch to a Pet Portrait!
If you run out of curls I have more here!
