Meet Slime, the swamp monster. He is needle felted sculpture that has been a WISP since last October. He was supposed to be completed for a Halloween challenge but perhaps he only wanted to come out for Memorial Day.
He’s all wool which I dyed. He thinks he’s on a calendar for all those lonely female swamp monsters. So he’s posing in a provocative way.
Here’s a closeup of his face.
Here’s my finished iris piece. This isn’t the best of photos. I stitched the silk iris on the background and did some stitching highlights. I didn’t think the iris were highlighted enough so I added a little pearlescent white paint to high light the iris.
