The art of needle felting dogs can produce amazingly hyper-realistic ? almost taxidermic ? results, and with a little know-how, some needles and wool, and a few inexpensive accessories, you can also needle felt like a professional. If you have ever wanted to improve your needle felting and take it to a whole new level to create lifelike dogs, A Masterclass in Needle Felting Dogs, by world class needle felting master Cindy-Lou Thompson of Chicktin Creations, will show you how. Covering four different breeds of dog (Dachshund, Chihuahua, Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle), with step-by-step instructions and photos, Cindy takes you through the processes of creating different body shapes, proportions, armatures, coats, and blending, as well as realistic accessories such as eyes, noses, mouths, ears, and nails. Learn how to achieve a professional finish with different textured coats, clipping and shaping, and finishing off, using a variety of mediums and methods, some of which Cindy has designed and developed herself, and never revealed until now.
