What do you felt with?
This is some of my felting gear on my favourite felting surface.....the breakfast bar. I use a large variety of materials, purpose chosen for the felting activity. I will always finish off all my felt, by rolling in a strong cotton fabric, I use some cheap old denim I picked up. I will only use olive oil to felt with.......my hands demand it and so does the quality of the felt I produce.
Love my water ball or felting pear, so glad that I found a supplier years ago in Germany. Love my Wolfgang! I always use a nice ceramic bowl for my water, keeps the heat, great size and looks pretty to boot.
But what do you roll on?? I have used bamboo blinds, bubble wrap, non slip mat, thin plastic and synthetic fabric. I can use a couple of these in one session, we all have our favourites and sometimes want to speed up or slow down the process.
The two things I am currently in love with are pictured below.
