Would you like to create a detailed and realistic long fur look on your needle felted animals?

In this video tutorial I demonstrate how to add layers of wool to a miniature donkey (as shown in the photos). The techniques can be adapted for any long furred animal.

Join me on my journey from preparation to finish; starting with carefully ‘needle brushed’ leg fibres, then fluffy tummy and long textured back fur.

You will also see how I create a middle parting on the donkey’s muzzle, add a long fluffy fringe and a beautiful flowing mane.
