Color Blending sample


Color Blending sample, originally uploaded by minstrel spinner.

Color blending was one fo the lessons in my workshop that really resonated with me. I love taking two diferent colors of wool and then blending them using my hand carders, to make a gradation from color A to color B. In this sample, I used rust and purple wool to make a narrow background, then I laid down the same gradation in the opposite directions, felting those little squares to the ground. The center squares best show a thin dark border, which was applied ny needle felting, to add detail.
