    Hi Gail,

    The add on courses are equal in difficulty to the other courses at their level. I do agree that the camel would be a little easier than the llama. Let me know if you have any more questions!

    Hi Cindy,

    I have used horsehair for whiskers. I got mine from my son’s horse, but you can find horse hair here:

    Attach the head to the neck the same as you attached the neck to the body. I would attach the waddle after attaching the head. The most important thing to know about adding the dark brown spots to the neck is to have the neck felted as firmly as possible so that the added spots don’t sink in and disappear.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

    That depends on the size balls you are wanting to make. Depending on how firmly they are packed into the nylons, what type of wool you are using etc all factor into the size.

    I don’t think it’s too long. I wouldn’t round out the back of the head, I would add to the forehead area so that it is higher. It looks sloped down towards the back of the head in the first picture.

    The shape of the head in the second picture looks good from the top.

    If you think it is too long for your body, try shortening it a bit by felting the back of the head. This might help build up the forehead as well.

    Let me know if I can be of any more help. I can’t wait to see your finished horse!

    Hi Judith,

    I’m thinking the wool wasn’t rolled up as tightly as you have done before maybe, which made it loose in the middle and that needed felting to firm up. Zebra’s do have pretty big heads in proportion to their bodies. If you still think it is too big, and you have felted it as firmly as possible, I would add to the body and neck to make it match the head as best as possible.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Looking good so far!

    What I have done in the past is make many small purple balls and felt them together into a clump of grapes and then add a brown stem. I’ve also used different shades of purple when making the balls to try and make them more realistic and detailed.

    It is very time consuming, so that is why I haven’t managed to put a video together on it yet.  Hopefully I will get that done soon.

    Let me know if you have any more questions! Can’t wait to see pictures of your finished cornucopia.

    I would suggest making large pre-felted balls to fit the size you want your dragon to be. It can be difficult to get large balls firm, so it may take a few extra times through the washer.

    I look forward to seeing your larger sculptures! Let me know if you have any more questions as you g0.
