Needle felting has grown in popularity in leaps and bounds in recent years, with many textile artists using wool create amazing sculpted creations.
Japanese artist Wakuneco has taken the craft to another level, by creating hyper-realistic hand-felted cat faces. The artist uses wool of various different colors and creates 3D portraits of cats using needle felting techniques. It’s a very long and delicate work, but the stunning result is worth the efforts.
The artist uses pictures of real cats to create portraits as realistic as possible.
