    1. Thanks Ruth. Reading Teri’s book resist tutorial on the feltingandfibrestudio was inspirational! Its kept its shape well but I was wondering about using Shellac to stiffen a piece like this. I’ve seen several Feltmakers mention it, is it something you’ve used before?

      1. I haven’t used shellac before but I know we talked about this on the forum several times. If you go to the forum, just search on stiffening felt or even shellac. Hope that helps.

  1. I love it! I’ve been experimenting, too. I really like your use of dual colors to accentuate the ribbing.

    1. Thanks Marilyn. I figured the ribs needed to be thicker than the main body so added strips of prefelt. It’s worked out chunkier than intended but it’s a lesson learnt! I will look forward to seeing your experiments.
