I used Merino tops for the felting and it is on a bought A4 size piece of wool mixture felt, through trial and error I've found that wool mixture holds it shape far better than pure wool felt for the way I make these pictures.
The picture is A4 in size.
I've just titled it Cherie.
I used a size 36 felting needle throughout but this doesn't mean you can't use a finer one for details.
I blended loads of variations of white, grey and very little black to create the picture.
