How a felt is made

August 18th, 2011 by Administrator | Posted in The Artists at Work |

Here is an example of how a felt tapestry is made.

Alibay is working on a new version of ‘Mysterious Reflections’ (see below, 65″ x 120″, 2007). The commission calls for a reddish background, and slightly larger dimensions. In the photos, you can see the different raw materials, Alibay mixing colors with a coarse brush, the white base, and the application of the pattern.  A new masterpiece in the making!
