From playful tabbies to fierce black cats, this book shows you how to create felted felines in every shape and posture: crouching, preening, stretching, napping and ready to pounce!
Housetsu Sato is a Japanese felting artist and a great lover of cats. In this book, he shows you how to become an expert in capturing a cat's essential form and character—especially at the kitten stage, when they are full of surprises.
Key techniques included:
Forming the basic shapes and cat body parts
Creating a variety of familiar cat poses and postures
Adding realistic textures and markings to the fur
Giving unique expressions to your cat faces
Along the way, he also shows you how to add real character to your makes, including how to incorporate fur from your real kitties into your felted models.
Detailed instructions and photos for each cat piece, fur texture and marking make these projects friendly even if you are new to felting. Full-size templates help you form the correct shapes and proportions, and brief lessons in cat anatomy help you make your felted cats truly lifelike. Photos showing variations on the poses and markings make it easy to envision your own cat's likeness emerging from your hands.
