That has to be the best woolen effect I've ever seen. Ther rest is great, too, but the wool! I can feel the scratchiness!

Hi Mario, Yep as Rudi mentioned more detail on MedRom, however basically I sculpted base with Apoxie putty, then textured with Winsor & Newton Fine Texturing Gel (neat stuff this) and painted with acrylics and W&N Blending Medium over a full day worth of painting went into this alone. Glad you like it. Mike

Now that couldn't be a nicer comment Al! Exactly what I was trying to achieve a texture that says something about the clothing, in this case a blanket from his mum Thanks for the feedback, Mike
