Stella, the Barn Owl





I just finished Stella, this afternoon. She's both needle felted and wet felted.  And she has polymer clay feet and beak.  I also added tiny pearly white seed beads to her white spots.   I learned a few things about the the brands of liquid polymer.  I found that Sculpey liquid polymer binds pieces together better than Kato liquid polymer. Kato is much clearer while Sculpey is a bit more opaque and has a satiny finish.

This is unbelievably beautiful! May I ask what you used the liquid polymer for in its creation? I'm new to felting and looking to learn lots of techniques.
