Lifelike animal sculptures done through needle

Realistic animal needle felting, This segment is about a person who specializes in creating realistic animals by a relatively unknown art form, needle felting. Wool fibers are stabbed into by very sharped and barbed needle many times which knots the fibers through the needle’s barbs and then the wool fibers can be molded and sculpted into forms. He often starts with a normal wire armature, the animal’s skeleton and then felt around it. He often sculpts claws from fimo and adds taxidermic quality glass eyes while working with tons of pictures of reference. View hi work down below.
