Northern wing of the estate.
A stone-paved path leads to Morezmore Studio.
Inside you find:
a jar of Xtreme Hair Gel, used to smooth the surface of a needle-felted puppet.
Puppets need to be felted softer, compared to traditional needle-felted sculptures, in order to allow the movement. Therefore, the surface can be rather fuzzy and further tighter felting to smooth the surface sometimes is not an option. Painting puppet with hair gel brings the wool fuzz down and glues it to the surface. When it dries, it creates a transparent flexible layer on top of the puppet skin.
Any hair gel should work, although I only tried this one.
This one is xtra firm, dries clear and invisible, no flakes coming out while handling the puppet.
250 gram (8.9 oz)
