Needle Felted Monstrous Nightmare by SnowFox102 Needle Felted Monstrous Nightmare by SnowFox102
My biggest feltie yet, about three feet long from snout to tail! :la: This is Spit Fyre, the Nightmare OC of ~MarieBlack07. I had a lot of fun making her. She's needle felted from wool, and her dark markings are fabric marker. I tried airbrushing some of them, with mixed results. :P I ended up touching up most of them with the marker itself. Her horns, claws, and teeth are made of Lumina clay. The ridges on her horns were made with puff paint, then I added a couple of layers of Flex Paste, then painted.

That's me in the top left pic, by the way. :P

EDIT: I forgot to mention, she DOES have a wire armature, as most of my figures do. Her wings have three wires each, which enables them to fold inward and support her weight.

Sorry for the late reply. D: The wings are mostly needle felted, but I did run them through the washing machine at one point to tighten them up a bit. Wet felting has a tighter end result, but is more random and difficult to control, so pretty much everything I do is entirely needle felted. :)

It's a craft called needle felting, in which wool is sculpted using specially made needles. The notches on the needles catch the hairs and cause them to knot together, creating a solid but pliable form over time. It takes a lot of time so some people find it too tedious, but I enjoy it. :)

It's wonderful, just one question, did you attach the clay parts with glue or some other way?

Each clay part has a wire embedded in it, which I glued into a hole poked in the felt. Just plain ole super glue. It holds quite well. :)
