In a gloomy spring day, outside was getting to rain and dull but my students were managed to finish the vivid nuno felt scarfs with pretty leaves prints. Yesterday A & J came the second time to learn from me wool felting. Two weeks ago they made the woolly tote bags. They're really into wool felt and have the passion. How wonderful !
濛濛細雨的早春, 兩位學生A & J 意興正濃來到我家做第二件的羊毛製作. 今次是做一件混絲羊毛被肩然後舖上葉子做植物印染. 是日完成了繽紛多變款式 nuno felt 被肩, 傍晚高興地被著回家.
Laid wool on silk chiffon with merino white and little purple on the upper part of the scarf, left the bottom to open.
After rubbing and "rock n roll" , each finished a long nuno felt scarf in 2.5 hours.
Put on some rose leaves, assorted euc leaves for the second part of the making. This was my students' first time making natural prints and have no idea how it would turn out. Though I'm keen on using iron mordant to have shades, they may not like the unexpected result of dark. So we only used the leaves and simple method without mordant.
After boiled in 2 hours....... unwrapping.....
with candy color .......
Soft green of rose leaves, bright red of silver dollar euc and yellow to gold of other euc from bold on the wool part to soft on the chiffon base.
All those colors are what they wanted
Nuno felt scarf prints on wool are bold and bright, down on the chiffon prints are soft and draping nicely.
Light tie lines added color at one end
A scarf? a wrap? Multi styles.
Wool on the upper to have a collar
Thank you A & J. You made it. You made me a rainy day, a gloomy day bright with the colorful scarf.
