Needle Felted Tinybirdman #3 [Merino Wool, Weighted with Glass Marbles]
Though new ceramic work is on temporary hiatus, Tinybirdman is back - this time in a soft and wooly form!
Slowly evolving from the starting point of Needle Felted Tinybirdman #1, and Needle Felted Tinybirdman #2, this third incarnation is slightly larger, featuring larger teardrop eyes, more defined boots, and a body made of charcoal and off-white Merino wool, instead of black and white Corriedale.
This Tinybirdman's body is solidly assembled from a core of glass marbles, encased in solid core wool batting with an outer layer of soft Merino wool in charcoal and white.
Material: Wool and glass
Size: 4" tall, 6" from foot to foot, 3" body diameter
Process: Needle felted
Care and Keeping:
Needle-felted works are very sturdy in many ways, but quite delicate in others! Please read on to find out how to keep your new piece in the best condition possible.
Spot clean only, please!
Washing machines will cause irreparable changes to the fibers.
Be wary of pets!
Many a good art doll has been mailed in for repairs after being snagged by a dog or cat.
Best if kept away from backpacks, dirt, etc
While it looks like a toy, this is a soft sculpture and is not meant to be excessively handled.
Not intended for small children
Rough play will fuzz up the fibers, and the marbles inside present a choking hazard if released.
