I really enjoy wet felting. I love starting from raw wool roving and ending with whatever I want to create. Today I want to show you folks a pair of wristlets I made. I really love the grey scale/vivid color combo and when I got a bit of a super vivid pink wool in a sample bag I ordered, I knew I had to do something cool and 80’s like with it.
I love the way these turned out. I added little bits of silk thread in places, and I hand-spun some of the pink wool into a little length of yarn to add some texture to them.
I definitely plan to make more wristlets because they’re so fun. Next time, though, I’ll show you one of the little bags I’ve been making!
Now that the Etsy shop is up and going, I feel like I want to let you folks know a bit about where I want to go for the rest of the year. 🙂
While I work toward getting to a place were I can develop new colors and put out new polishes whenever the mood hits me, for now, I’m going to do releases in bits and pieces.
The plan is to release 2 more full sets of six polishes this year (Tentatively in July and October) and 2 polishes per month in between those, with potential surprises here and there. Like, I’m working on a good black and a good white, and I’ll likely plop those in whenever they’re ready. 🙂
On that note, I’ve released May’s color pair early-You can get them here and here!
I’m also going to add 5ml bottles of polish to the shop in May because I know some folks want to try colors before they buy a big bottle. (I’m still fiddling with labeling. 🙂 )
And! In May I’ll start offering a custom color service. My idea is to create custom colors for folks who need special gifts (Weddings, friends, Tuesday. 😀 ). I’ll give that its own post.
Lastly, I would love input from you folks! Tell me how you like the polishes so far, tell me what I could do better, tell me what colors you’d like to see!
