First, make the body with core wool, Shaping the body with coarse felting needle, Faster? try multi needle tool
The making process of the body is the most difficult in this tutorial. After all, many people do not have an art foundation and may not necessarily produce the best proportions of body and limbs. But it doesn't matter. The most significant advantage of needle felting is that it is very malleable. You can make a cylinder first and then make adjustments like when you make slime sculptures by adding and subtracting to make the body's shape. Meet your requirements, but remember one thing, before finalizing the shape, don't stab too hard. Otherwise, you won't be able to adjust it later.
In the early stage, coarse needles were used for the initial setting. In the process of continuous shaping, the medium needles were used for further refinement, and finally, fine needles were used for final adjustment and optimization.
