Truly beautiful works of art!
Hi Rebecca, your felt paintings are beautiful!!! I just started making little animals this last fall, but want to try my hand at felt-painting. What do you use as backing, and how did you get started? Debby Wager (friend of the Macicas)
Hi Sister Debby! I got started using a great book called Art in Felt & Stitch, by Moy Mackay. For a backing I just use the base layer of white wool that gets felted in with the layers that make up the picture on top. You could probably glue or sew a piece of fabric to the back for hanging or simply a clean look too. Also, I made a quick tutorial on how I make painting (hopefully this makes my meaning clearer!) The post is called Poppy Felt Painting, Part 1, and that’s here on the blog.
Let me know if you have more questions! Felt painting is really is a fun craft.
