The ubiquitous Amanita mushroom will provide a cheerful “Velkommen” to your home. Learn how shading creates depth and realism in this mushroom wool painting. Your friends will be so impressed that you actually made this!
You will use wool roving, a barbed needle, and newly acquired poking skills to “paint with wool”. You’ll gain understanding about wool, a natural medium, and it’s ability to depict nature. Then you’ll learn how to needle felt different shades of red and brown to add a three dimensional effect to your image.
The fabric canvas is up cycled from the mill ends at Pendleton, here in Oregon.
