Miniature wool paintings

Miniature wool paintings

Approximately 5 inches square. A mixture of wet and needle felt techniques. I use wool as a painter uses paint. They are full of movement and many different colour fibres. Using lots of different shades of one colour helps to create the hue that I am trying to achieve. Unlike paint when mixing blue and yellow will make green and adding white will lighten wools don’t change colour they have to be patiently and carefully blended. I find this a very magical and relaxing. Each painting has many layers of wool added either by wet or needle felting. This is a process that takes time. These miniature painting and others are available Starlings Art and; Craft Collective, plus Dippy Doodahs
