Jasmine - Commission by pahein Jasmine - Commission by pahein
Hi! I'm currently reserving spots for commissions! Please check out my commission info!


For some reason, I'm unable to come up with anything for a title. I'll chalk it up to the mini-funk I'm in.

This is ~Ravean's commission for her character, Jasmine. It has been a long and interesting process, what with figuring out college and all, but it's finally finished. 8" tall from foot to head (not including crest), she clocks in at just about a meter long wingspan.

Basically, what I've learned is that felt, no matter how much I wish it could be, is not like feathers. The only thing that is like a feather is a feather. Which, although sad, does not mean I can't make feather-ish things. With lots of glitter.

I've also learned that glitter fibers are terribly difficult to felt.

I can't really think of anything else to add, except that it's done and yay!

Jasmine ~Ravean
Art me~

This creation was made with a type of crafting called needle felting. Basically what happens is I take a bunch of loose (i.e. roving) wool and jab it with a needle (many, many times). The wool bonds to itself, slowly getting firmer and firmer. Eventually, it's firm enough to stand by itself in a sculpture-like way. By adding more roving wool, I can sculpt a creature or a person or whatever out of the wool.

Needlefelting is a relatively new craft, having only been invented 30 years or so ago. It's similar to the process of wet felting, but instead of using water to bind the wool together, needles are used.

My needlefelt creations almost always include a wire base, so they are extremely posable, and I find the freedom of sculpting and the resulting plushness to be everything I could have asked for in a medium.

I take commissions occasionally when I have the time. If you'd like a quote, and for me to notify you when I open again, just send me a note! I'm always happy to answer any questions you may have.
