Adventure Time's Lady Rainicorn with Finn and Jake on her back riding through the clouds (like seen in episode 9).
A needle felted flat piece made on a piece of synthetic felt, as seen before in [link]
The application is made from 100% merino wool. For this piece I experimented with mixing colours:
(in my suppliers terms)
- Jake is made up out of ochreous and lemon yellow
- The translation device uses light gray and a natural merino (off white) to get a smooth gray
- The mouths (very tiny pieces) use light brown and bordeaux red
I also found some good use for my gauge 43 needle (thinnest available over here).
- Piece: 36cm x 10cm
- Application: 21cm x 8cm
It took me quite a lot of time to produce (roughly 12 hrs). I had most difficulty with Jake, because he tends to misshape much easier than anything I've come across before.
I might create the back legs later on...
I've definitely rediscovered some of the fun in felting, which I thought I had lost. I'll try to deliver something new soon.
