This tutorial features revised versions of my two Felted Vessel Tutorials. I have combined them together in a convenient, easy to read PDF format. My free tutorials are still available and you can find the details and links in my projects http://www.craftsy.com/user/677062/projects
I have updated the instructions to make them more detailed and added some extra photos to help illustrate a couple of the steps better. There is also an additional 6 pages of Tips and Handy Hints for achieving different results and effects.
You don't need any special tools, just your usual felting supplies. The 3-D resists used in the projects are one that I handmade from bubble wrap and tape, and the other is the bladder of an old football (soccer ball). A good quality inflatable balloon filled with water also makes a good resist.
I've been felting for quite a few years, and never get tired of trying out different wool breeds, fabrics, fibres and techniques to make felt even more interesting. I enjoy the process of felting as much as the outcome and love to learn why and how different effects are achieved.
