More Nuno Felting

Here are the final samples from last weekends Nuno Felting workshop.
The first one is the front and the second one is the back depending on which way you want it.
I placed the silk georgette fabric with the predominantly purple colour on the bottom and then lay the wool tops out in a fine layer to form a grid on top this.
I then placed a piece of aqua silk organza over the grid and began the felting process as before.

What happens is that the wool fibres shrink and the two fabrics bubble up between the holes in the grid forming this amazing pattern.

In the next samples I used 4 different coloured wool tops to make the design--the first photo is the front and the next one is the back.
I will make this into a small art quilt .

The back is a piece of cheap indian cotton that was very thin but it already had the tye die pattern on it.


The last piece was placed on a piece of black cotton voille and the wool tops were layered and a fancy wool fibre was laid on top to form a grid and then snippets of hand dyed cotton scrim were scattered on top of this.


The back shows the black fabric with the coloured wools migrating through.
This will also be a small art quilt.


All of these pieces measure 10" by 8" (25cm by 20cm)

Very lovely Doreen. I love the back of the top piece - great textures aren't they? x

Hi Doreen, these are lovely. I don't know how you're going to choose whether to use the front or the back as both sides are attractive on all of them - or perhaps you'll be able to use bits of each?

These are beautiful Doreen, especially the 4th one, it looks like a sunset!

These are stunning. The backs are as nice as the fronts.

I agree with Lynne these pieces look just as good on the back as they do on the front. Just put Nuno Felting on my list of 101 things to try!!!

These are lovely Doreen. I like the top 2. A bigger piece like these would make a fabulous wrap or scarf.

All are very wonderful...but my absolute favorite is the very first picture. I love the geometric pattern that developed and the colors and textures are luscious.
