“Wool painting” is a technique used to create a picture, not by the methods of dry or wet felting, but by placing multiple colors of dry wool fibers in layers on a frame base, which has been covered with a quilted fabric surface. Once completed, the picture is nicely framed under the glass covering. This process does not use any needle, glue, water or paint. When the wool fibers are compressed under a glass surface, the artwork resembles a watercolor painting. It is only when you come closer to the picture that you realize it’s not painted. Under the weight of the glass, the multiple layers of wool blend together to form an image, which is lively, colorful, and very bright.
I can make a different size, based on your requirements. Please contact me to discuss the details.
Keep in mind that I will need to create a new wool painting for you and it will take 3 or more days to complete, depending on the size of the picture. The painting you receive may differ slightly from the image posted on the website, because each wool painting is unique. Wool is a living material and the fibers always act differently when laid into place. In addition, the colors of wool in each painting may differ slightly because of the nature of the fibers and the dyeing process used at my source for wool. Before shipping, I’ll send you the image of the final painting to make sure you love it and, if needed, make changes as you wish.
I can change the frame for any of my original wool paintings. Please contact me to discuss the details.
Keep in mind that, depending on the frame you pick, the price of the wool painting may change, as well as the shipping cost. The availability of a frame might also affect the processing time for the order.
Most of my paintings can be bought without a frame. To keep the painting safe during shipping, a plexiglass covering will be used for protection.
When placing your order, go to the product page and use the drop down menu near “Frame options” and click on the button to purchase the painting without a frame.
You can order something similar to one of my paintings, or send me the image you would like created with wool, or we can work together to come up with a unique idea. Please, keep in mind, that exact repletion is impossible. Wool is a living material and the fibers always act differently when laid into place.
Before working on custom orders, payment is required. The lead-time will vary, depending on the item. Prior to shipping, I’ll send you the image of the final painting to make sure you love it and, if needed, make changes as you wish.
Please keep in mind that custom orders will be final sales. I cannot accept returns or exchanges on any custom items. Please contact me to discuss the details.
I can provide larger quantities of most items in my store. Please contact me with details.
- Each painting comes framed with a glass covering to protect the wool fibers, and it’s ready to hang.
- To remove dust and fingerprints, use a glass cleaner on the glass and a dusting cloth on the frame.
- Don’t remove the glass cover. The wool fibers could shift or fall apart as a result, and the painting may be damaged.
- Don’t let the painting fall; it can damage the frame and break the glass. Small pieces of glass could become deeply embedded between the wool fibers and it won’t be possible to remove them.
- Avoid moisture and don’t get the painting wet. Don’t hang the painting in the bathroom or outside the house.
- If you are concerned about moths, you can attach an anti-moth product to the back of the frame or hang it nearby.
If you purchase a wool painting to give as a gift, I’ll hand write a personalized note from you and place it in the shipping box for FREE. I’ll also wrap the painting with gift paper for an additional $20.
