Rarity needle felt by ChloeNArt Rarity needle felt by ChloeNArt
My first ever pony needle felt. Oh my word Rarity's hair was hard to do, and it's super delicate so no one is allowed to touch her lol. Originally I gave her simplified eyes (more simple than Pinkie's even) and it just didn't look right so I redid them more in the show style and she looks 100x better. If you wanted to see her original eyes there are photos on my blog: [link]

There's no needles in it, if that's what you mean? But I used needles to make it (sorry if I misunderstood hah).

Wow, I love MLP!!
Do you know if raw wool is available at Hobbylobby or Michael's, or some other store? I really would like to avoid ordering online if possible, and I've been wanting to try needle felting for quite some time now.
And do you know where I could get a felting needle?

Well, so far the only time I've found felting wool in actual shops has been in Hobbycraft, which I assume could be a UK equivalent to the shops you mentioned? The selection there was very poor and the quality of wool was horrible to be honest. I haven't had much luck, but then I haven't tried searching very hard, I source my wool online. The only alternative I could think of for you to try could be craft fairs maybe. I've heard some of the big ones have a large selection of raw wool for needle felting.
Felting needles should be easier to find than the wool, I've seen them for sale in craft stores :) If you're not averse to buying the needles online then Ebay or Etsy have loads of options.
Sorry if I haven't been much help, but good luck in finding some materials!

Great job! How did you get her mane and tail to look so polished? Did you spray it with a fixative?
Reply
:iconchloenart:
ChloeNArt Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013  Student
In this picture she hadn't been sprayed yet, I just needle felted the mane and tail very sparingly to keep it smooth and soft (not a great technique if you want durability btw), but I have started using hairspray recently and it works a treat :)

superb! it reminds me of the G1 so soft ponies for some reason..

I wonder, would using hairspray make it more stable? I don't know if you'd do that, just an idea (and it would be appropriate for Rarity! ^^ )

The simplified eyes looked fine and she was still cute, but these ones are just fabulous. Her hair looks wonderful too. I like that you used a few colors in her hair to make it look more like it has a gradient like the show.

Thanks so much :) I'm glad someone noticed the hair highlights, I worked hard to incorporate them into it without hopefully being too obvious.

It looks great. It's subtle, but gives her hair a lot more dimension!

Thank you! Needle felting uses a barbed needle to sort of mesh fibres of wool together by repeatedly stabbing them over and over if that makes sense. Just in case you wanted to know :)
