This adorable dog mold was easy to use with great results.
The kit comes with everything you need to make a simple terrier type dog. It includes the a foam silhouette mold, (blue) detail mold, wool roving and a needle for felting. (I would recommend using a different needle felting tool such as the clover felting pen, or needle tool to work faster.)
The dogs you can make with this kit provides a great foundation body for any breed. I used it to make a couple of poodles and used a variegated curly roving to make a classic looking poodles in black and white.
A couple of tips from my experience - be careful when punching in the blue detail mold, you do not want to punch so hard that the needle will pierce the mold as fibers will also be punched into the mold. This happened to me the first time I used the kit, and it wasn't a big deal - you just get better results if it doesn't happen. It was also helpful to watch a Youtube video demonstration...
This kit is a nice introduction to needle felting though it requires more preplanning than the instructions suggest. a) Divide the cream roving in half and then separate perhaps a quarter from each hank in order to use as touch up material. b) The roving should not be packed as densely into the white form as much as suggested. c) To create a more three dimensional character you may consider using aluminum foil armatures inside the head and body. d) When packing the blue form try creating wispy edges rather than hard edges, the joins will be easier to hide. If there had been more cream roving I'd give this a 5 star review. I bought roving from Wistyria which gave me enough to complete the dog along with foil and more color choices (or you could use dark brown inside the body). Completing the dog took 6 hours for an adult. Kids cannot do this on their own or even assist. I poked myself hard enough to draw blood although trying to be careful.
I bought this to explore needle felting and found a craft medium that is amazingly satisfying. I made the dog and then I went out and bought more wool to make other things.
This is a great starter kit. The needle is very sharp. This is not a child's craft project by any means. It is easy. It is fun. It is relaxing due to the repetitive poking. I would not recommend it for a child since I did poke myself a few times.
