Maxine Shattock – Wildlife Wool Paintings

Wildlife Wool Paintings

The combination of an interest in textiles and a love for wildlife has helped me create my ‘Wildlife Wool Paintings’.Two felting techniques are used to make my paintings, using mainly Merino wool, firstly the base is wet felted, this is the traditional method using soap, warm water and a little elbow grease! The next stage is to add the wildlife, for this I use the more modern felting technique of needle felting or dry felting, by using a barbed felting needle to blend the fibres, I am effectively painting with wool.
