'Sleeping Aussie Baby' Bilby Felting Kit
Project 6, Level 2
The biggest lesson from the Bilby Feltorial is the ears. I will show you how to create the largest and finest in the series so far. These ears are created to look more like skin than fur and I will show you how to create more detail and expression with ears and why it’s important.
The snout of the Bilby is just like a little pig and there are some tips and tricks on how we can achieve this. More whiskers and a new technique to create a very pronounced and slender snout will enhance and reinforce the lessons learned in the Phascogale Feltorial.
There are loads of instructional photos to help you with the heavier body sculpting and brand new techniques for creating the spectacular plumed tail. All of this and more to prepare you for the next challenge as we cross the half way mark in the Sleeping Aussie Babies Series.
