Ratty, needle felted and shaded with soft pastels.
Standing just 2.5 inches high Ratty has such “hello eyes”. Needle felted with wired and thread jointed upper limbs and a wire armature tail.
The main colour is flesh tone merino wool top then shaded with artist soft pastels, and of course his white wool teeth.
This whiskers are human hair! My daughter had some hair wefts that are used to make hair extensions they worked, what do you think?
There are so many characters in my head, not all of them translate into the soft sculptures.
I am trying to find characters that I can give personality to, or a range of personalities to each creation.
The search goes on!
