Hey guys.
If you're adding a bi of "extra fluff" make sure you DON'T put it on straight. So, take that little bit of fluff that you want to add, and mush it around with your fingers to make sure none of the fibers are straight. I find this really helps with blending. Then I will also take the tip of my felting needle and try and wrap any loose fibres that haven't felted in yet. Then with all the loose fibers on the tip of the needle, I felt that right into my project. Helps control the fuzzies without cutting them off.

Hope this helps,

Heather

BINGO Heather!! Couldn't have said it better myself!!! 

Just make sure to go into your work at evey possible angle.  My fav needle for this is 38S.

Thanks Heather, that does make sense, I feel so silly.   :redface:

Judi sounds like the 38s, is for the fine details, so that would be ideal.

Thanks for the tips girls. :dance:
