Jelly Fish!

Yea! I'm very excited to present the finished JellyFish! Just to give you a brief description of what he is...

JellyFish - This sculpture is made of thin sheets of Nuno Felt with white Romney Wool & White Tulle. He was then needle felted over a stiff wire armature. He has glowing "El Wire" inside his tentacles that glows bright blue in dim light. The "El Wire" runs on 4 AA batteries & the controllers are stored inside a drawstring pouch that is sewn beneath the mess of tentacles at the bottom, which also helps create a stable base. Once sculpted he was airbrushed with fabric & acrylic paints.

I love how the photos in the dim light turned out!! I like how you can see how the "El Wire" really glows. So neat!! I really wanted to make something... pretty, or beautiful. I wanted it to be all flowy & pink. I am happy with how it turned out. I will be listing him in my Etsy shop at some point today.
