Layer 4 of layout for a sheet of prefelt (early a.m.!) Added the 4th layer because I decided I wanted less colour migration from the red/brown/orange layers. Still thin enough.
Did not intend to add this boring image, but now can't delete. So, here is me taking a shingle for layout (yawn)
after layer 3
Well, this is stage one of many stages. I have laid out the wool for a piece of prefelt that will become part of a larger piece. Today the plan is to felt it into a loose fabric. I will then, over days, truss it up to incorporate into a base of more wool.
I have other deadlines before this one, I am sure, but have yet to look because I am feeling motivated by this piece right now. Also, once I get the prefelt done, the next stage can be done in the evening upstairs with the family. When in the studio, I am totally detached from reality and family happenings which can be good and bad!
So now, the wool waits all laid out. It won't felt itself. Waiting for wet-out which, once occurs, I will not want to stop. So, tea break, a bit of purloined easter chocolate and I am off. I'll keep you posted.
