The art of needle felting can produce endless possibilities of hyper-realistic, almost taxidermic results. With a little know-how, some needles, wool and a few inexpensive accessories, you can learn to needle felt like a professional.
Take your needle felting to a whole new level to create a range of lifelike British wildlife. World class felting master Cindy-Lou Thompson of Chicktin Creations will take you through the steps.
Covering four different British wild animals, with illustrated step-by-step instructions, Cindy guides you through the process of creating different body shapes, proportions, armatures, coats, and blending, as well as realistic finishing touches such as eyes, nails, ears and detailing.
Learn how to achieve a professional finish you will be proud of with different textured coats, blending, clipping, and adding shape and giving a realistic finishing touch with a variety of mediums and methods, some of which Cindy has designed and developed herself.
From the author of the best-selling book A Masterclass in Needle Felting Dogs, this follow-up book will teach you new techniques, and inspire you to try new and exciting creations of your own!
Cindy Thompson was raised by her grandmother, who had a very successful business boarding, training & breeding dogs. Cindy drew on this experience during her working life, training security dogs in Barbados, and later as a dog warden in the UK. Her childhood hobby of making pipe-cleaner dogs, and her talent for art and crafts, became the basis of her creative work today. Serious illness and sepsis was to be the start of Cindy's needle felting journey: needing something to occupy her during a slow recovery, self-taught Cindy has become world class in this addictive craft, naturally specialising in breeds of dog.
