The Water Lily Picture Felt Kit contains:
Enough pure merino fleece in 12 different shades – 4 shades of green, 4 shades of bluey/green and 4 other colours. The kit also contains prefelt in 2 colours, wool yarn and coloured silk fibres. Also contains a felting needle, templates, pure olive oil soap flakes, thin plastic sheets, foam and bubble wrap.
You can complete one large picture (45 x 20 cm) in about 5 hours.
It is strongly advised that you watch the online tutorial, but there are also fully illustrated instructions for reference.
You can do small amounts at a time; only the very last part should be done in one go.
This felting kit is ideal for someone who has some experience of felt making; the online tutorial and instructions will give you a guide on how to build up a Lily felted picture inspired by Monet. You will learn how to make prefelt and make the lily by needle felt techniques. You will make the background by wet felting techniques and then wet felt the lily, bud and lily pads in place. The felting needle should always be used with foam underneath your work..
Artfelt’s high quality felt-making kits are all individually and carefully designed. Everything you need to start felting is included – all you need are some simple household items, warm water and your own creative hands. There are individual illustrated instructions and this kit also has its own unique tutorial, giving a simple step by step guide. These great kits use the finest soft merino tops 70s (21 micron). I get my merino fleece from a renowned UK Wool Merchant, who sources the merino wool from non-mulesed flocks in South America, and then dyes the fleece using dyes that are non-toxic, colour fast and baby-safe.
