FAQs
----------

WHAT IS IT?
This felted sculpture was wet and needle felted with white Romney wool over a foam base. He was then dyed purple using WashFast ProChem Dyes. He also has a working Blue LED light in his "fishing rod", a 2 AA battery holder conveniently hidden behind one of his removable eyeballs, and a place to store the batteries (when not in use) behind the other.

WHAT'S IT MADE OF?
I first carved a foam base then used 100% white wool to cover the foam by wet felting and a process called needle-felting. Needle-felting is a process of matting and compressing the wool into felt by stabbing a barbed needle into the fibers over and over again. I also used toothpicks as support for his spikey fins. He was then painted and sprayed with dyes which gives him his distinctive dark purple color. He has colorful wool felted on top as accents. Then I inserted the LED light and ran the wires down through to the battery pack in his eye socket.

HOW BIG IS IT?
His is about 18" long (by) 11" tall (by) 8" wide. About the size of 2 basketballs!!

ANYTHING ELSE?
The dyes are heat set on the wool... BUT BEWARE - the darker colors will bleed a little with too much handling or moisture. All parts are attached securely, but this is NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 12.
