Feltmaking and Silk Papermaking Books - "Needle Felting Dolls: A complete course in sculpting figures" Roz Dace & Judy Balchin NEW (perfect)
The Woolly Felters Roz Dace and Judy Balchin bring you another fun-packed needle felting book, this time with dolls that are vibrant, quirky and full of character!
Learn how to sculpt fairies, kawaii characters, a royal family, and even yourself or your friends. There are ten varied projects, each with needle felted clothing, hair and accessories.
Roz and Judy provide practical ideas for designing your own dolls, familiarizing you with the basic doll to get you started and including an accessible 'help me' section for reference. Techniques like creating an inner core, working with a partial or full armature and both wet and dry felting are also covered. The dolls have a range of props such as a bag, spectacles, a toy rabbit, and even an armchair for Knitting Nigel to sit in. What makes these dolls so appealing is the expression and character they exude, and the authors show you how to capture this. Learn how to create realistic figures or more exaggerated caricatures, as well as how to inject personality through your choice of features, hairstyle, embellishments and pose.
Enjoy mastering this beguiling craft under the expert instruction of two award-winning authors.
