I know these eyes don't look the best but they were still wet when I took the pictures.
I have always uses wool alone for the eyes , but since many times making polymer sculpted fairies I would make my eyes in insert on the dolls, I decided to try it out and I can tell you that I *really* like the end results.
Last night I spent over 5 hours making my new bear. I was only able to make his head because when I needle felt I like to add thin layers at a time to allow the final sculpture to be very firm.
I made many sculptures that were much softer than what I do now , but is like .... improving... it is very hard when a needle felted artist felts a sculpture firmly , to go back to soft... at least that is the case with me. I will upload his progress.... I thought to make a fish to go with him. This will be a fairytale bear and he will be holding a hand full of worms. A gift to Mr. fish.
I Like to think that this will be a * Covenant of Peace* between these two.* grin*
