Needle Felted Styrofoam

I am so addicted to needle felting and wet felting that I had to start up a huge project involving a styrofoam head.









I have felted styrofoam balls and egg shapes before and am also working on a foam ring that is almost finished, but I just can't put this head down!


I have covered it in light skin coloured felting wool and used black wool for the eyes, deep red for the mouth and will embellish the front dress area with blue/green/red and gold.






.

She has been nick named "Geraldine" by friends, but as she progresses her name will be changed, perhaps abit more regal!




It is very easy and extremely theraputic, just pull off a small amount of wool and lay it on the foam and push the needle into the foam moving across the area until smooth.


She looks really freaky, but is slowly developing into a woolly beauty in a needle felted sort of way!




I am quite happy with her eyes, but they're not finished yet!


I need to get together some more supplies and I think she is going to become quite difficult on certain parts but I am looking forwards to the challenge!




I will put more pics up as I progress, which hopefully will be very soon! :)
