Soft Sculptural Relativity: Needle Felted Bust of Albert Einstein
Stumbled upon this old post by Bella McBride at her blogspot of a needle felted bust of Albert Einstein – the likeness is so good, the material is great for his mustache and hair, and it’s really impressive considering it’s 14.5 inches tall!
This is the first time that I’ve needle felted a person to look like an actual person. I’ve done lots of green men and pumpkins but this was a challenge to make Albert actually look like Albert. And yes, after spending hours and hours and days and days working so closely on this piece I feel like I can call Mr. Einstein, Albert!
