today's efforts

felting
i can't recommend felting with emu feathers - they moult :( i might try adding them afterwards next time. the clumps of possum fur worked well though and this piece is ready for the nexct stage - a thin layer of synthetics, organza and stitching before a light toasting

painting on silk and canvas was much more successful - this will be a triptych i think

Looking forward to seeing how this works out. do you have one of those embellishing machine things that seem all the rage?
