Ceramic Felting Stone October 08 2014, 0 Comments

These felting stones are great for wet felting any type of project. I use them when I make scarves, vessels and bags. They are great for detail felting where you may not want to felt the whole project but just sections. If I have a piece that I am working on that has lots of detail and I don’t want the detail to get distorted with the rolling process, this is my go to tool.  It works fast and you can really apply great pressure to get the wool felted.

I also like to use this in my resist felting where I can get right in the middle of a vessel or bag.IMG_9100 IMG_9102

They are made of ceramic and are very durable. But do not drop on the ground as they may break. I have dropped mine a couple of times and has not broke yet, but that is on linoleum.  I’m pretty sure if it hits tile, it’s breaking.

As these are handmade by myself, they vary in size a bit but are roughly 5 inches X 3.5 inches. The green ones are a bit smaller at 4.25 X 3.25 inches

They can be purchased on Etsy at   https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/206181035/ceramic-felting-stone?  or my website at http://www.nickelbeeart.com/collections/wet-felting-tools
