That’s right, I just finished & listed in my Etsy shop, my newest Needle Felted Sculpture: Killer Baboon Clown!!
What are nightmares made of?
Inspired by the Halloween season & my love of scary, horror movies. I made this Killer Clown Baboon needle felted sculpture, honestly… because Clowns, Baboons, and giant bloody knives are all incredibly frightening!
This Killer Clown Baboon was made by first sculpting his basic shape out of core wool, then adding the basic colors of merino wool on top, all needle felted which is the process of compressing wool fibers using a barbed needle. Then he was shaded by applying thin layers of chalk pastel. His knife is sculpted and painted Paper Clay. He has a (slightly) poseable armature, and is securely attached to his wooden base.
He measures 11″ Tall x 9″ wide x 6″ deep.
