He's lovely all the same Galina, googly-eyed and lots of fun :) What silk did you use? Chiffon always gives a "dull" effect, habouti / pongee / paj 5 is a bit more shiny and a more rippled effect unless you full it very hard, this makes more wool migrate through and dulls the surface. For lots of shine I like to use either silk hankies / caps or mulberry silk top. Perhaps they could be used them in conjunction with nuno felt so you still get the bumpy texture but some sheen too?
Teri, I've used some silk hankies but no shine! Strange actually...
That is amazing, I love it. x
Thank you Sharon! It's fun to make it!
I like the eyes and it does look prehistoric! Sorry, can't answer shine question.
Thank you Lyn! I like the eyes myself!
