The Process

Each MISZEK is done by hands and each is unique. 
They are carved in wool using sharp felting needles. I put the layers of fur on previously constructed skeletons which are later wet felted and moulded for hours with the use of soap and boiling water into a furry being. I apply those techniques alternately. Needle-felting needs precision and wet-felting at times just turns into a physical work-out. But both need most of all time.

Felting Tips and Hints

1. Experiment. Try combining different techniques (needle felting and wet felting).
2. Do not be afraid of a faliure - challenge the unexpected.
3. Use reclaimed objects for construction, skeletons and frames.
4. Think BIGGER! at least 30% bigger - since your projects will shrink while felting, especially wet-felting.
5. Treat yourself to a cheap wooden brush instead of expensive plastic ones.
