Sometimes people ask “well, could you make [this] out of felt?” when they see what I’m doing. Those questions stick with me as sort of a challenge in my invisible notebook (brain). As I experiment with this medium I am constantly learning what I can do and.. well I haven’t found too much that I want to do an can’t. Having the basic knowledge of how this wool fiber functions is my most powerful tool.
One more recent “question” was that of Lichen, could I make wool lichen?(Thanks Jeremy!) Well, I can, and I started small with this new terrarium. As I branch out from my mushroom infatuation the lichen will get bigger.
