246. Yarn Painting Skull

Yarn Glued to Cardboard (8in x 11in). I was inspired by Keltie at 365 Masks to try out the technique of yarn painting!

UPDATE: Keltie just let me know that yarn painting is properly called Nearika and is practiced by the Huichol Indians of Mexico! See some examples HERE.

Dude! I don't know how you keep this going and stay so creative.

You're awesome.

WOW. This is fantastic! I love it.

Thanks for the shout-out, too!

How did you map this out? In your head, trial and error, lucky first try?

Great stuff!

That looks excellent. I like the way the teeth came out with this method -- nice effect.

Plus I like anything made with haberdashery... :P

Wow, thanks everyone!
B13: I sketched out the skull and then just followed the shapes. So yes, basically a lucky first try!

Serious props on this one, Noah! It's not difficult to tell that this one was pretty time consuming. I'm in awe.
