Dr. Paul and his trusty side kick Cappucino ('Cino for short) are here!
it was quite the challenge to do a real person, especially since
I've never met him in person and only had photos
to work with, but with this man's
characteristic face and frame, it was a lot of fun...Paul visits Ireland regularly
so I put him in his very own Aran sweater...
...and of course Cino was an absolute pleasure to recreate...
The wool for the dog and Pauls hair was perfect, thanks to
Celtique a husband and wife team from Wales who have
the most beautiful wool locks for felting or whatever your heart desires.
It is the softest, cleanest wool locks I've ever used and with their
advice on colours, well, Cino and Paul both ended up with
exactly what they needed.
By the way...here's photos of the real models...
So, on to the next project...
