Add to favourites

Book Description

Master Japanese felting artist and teacher (and a great cat lover himself) Housetsu Sato shows you how to become an expert in capturing a cat's essential form and character especially at the kitten stage, when they are full of surprises. In this book Housetsu Sato teaches you how to: form the basic shapes and cat body parts; create a variety of familiar cat poses and postures; add realistic textures and markings to the fur and give unique expressions to your cat faces. Along the way, he shows you how to infuse your felted friends with a playful sense of ‘cattitude’, including how to incorporate fur from your real kitties into your felted models.
