This week I have continued to experiment with my birthday present, a needle felting machine. This tool is turning out to be oodles of fun, and I am learning a lot: felting needles are very expensive, they break easily, and they leave little tiny holes in the wool roving.
Thinking that these holes are unattractive, I embarked upon a mission to minimize them. I didn't have access to any wool carding tools, so I hightailed it down to the local animal grooming purveyor in search of something I could use to comb those craters away.
Nothing in the horse grooming section looked appropriate, so I settled on a doggie grooming brush:
Hmm. Okay, but still lotsa holes. More doggie brushing.
Uh oh. A little wispy. Did I overdo it? I saw somewhere you could cover it with parchment paper and iron. Let's try that.
No perceptible difference, methinks. I think I like door number 2, before the more aggressive grooming.
