Today it's Jolande's birthday!!! CONGRATS GIRL !! Jolande has visit me last sunday and I had bought(and made) a present. This piece of art is from my flowershop and I've felted the flower and dreadlock myself. The girls from the shop has added 2 extra pins, so Jolande had to felt her own 2 flowers!!! So I gave her a little class felting. We started felting her 2 flowers and had a lot of fun!! *LOL* After that we've felted a book-cover for a mini album. The final results from a day with a lot of fun!! ThanXXX girl!!! The curly wool I've painted myself with Color Wash(butterscotch) from Ranger. The instructions you'll find HERE. So this is on my desk this Wednesday..... have to think about what kind of mini album I should make...??? I don't know yet.... Time will tell... Do you want to see more creative desks??

I've washed the wool with soap to remove the grease from the wool (*LOL* and some shit) Put the wool in a pan. Ad some colorwash and a bit water. I've used Sailboat Bleu and Purple Twilight. Put the pan on the stove and almost let it boil for 1 hour. Pour off the inky water and pat dry with paper towels. Put the wool into the microwave for 5 to 10 minutes on 500 watt. Don't know if this was necessary but after that I put some vinegar on it. Now the water stays clear!!! You can see the color is permanent now. Keep in mind the color will be different after the process .... purple and sailboat blue becomes turquoise blue!! My second painting is with Eggplant and the color becomes jeans blue!! Next week I'm going to felt a bag again.... I hope the color stays when I use soap during the felting process...
