Purple Giraffe Kirin by FamiliarOddlings Purple Giraffe Kirin by FamiliarOddlings
Another kirin giraffe! :D This one is for the wonderful ~fabular-mrfox!!! I hope you like it, my friend! I dyed the wool purple myself and tried out a few other new techniques with this one and I think it turned out great.

Needle felted wool over pipe cleaner. Eyes, hooves, and horn are painted paper clay. Stands at about 8 inches with a length of about five inches.

Oops, sorry that didn't make sense. :blush: This kirin is the result of a lot of learning, is what I meant to say.

Thank you again!

Thank you very much! It's great to get a comment like this! :D I feel these two kirins are a culmination of what I've learned about needle felting over the last couple months and it's extremely gratifying to hear it shows.

Thank you again! :heart:

Yes please purple is my favorite color. Green or yellow spots would be lovely if you could.
How much do you generally charge for one?

:iconfamiliaroddlings:
FamiliarOddlings Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011  Professional General Artist
:D Purple is also my favorite. Green or yellow would be lovely, indeed! ^__^ I'll have to decide between the two...

They are $50 USD plus shipping, which is $9 USD if you're in the USA. Could we do it through Etsy? It's just that I don't have many sales on there yet and I'd like to boost my rating. :) If you don't have an Etsy account, it's very easy to get one. My shop is here: [link]

I have an Etsy :D I just dont sell anything on it yet ^w^ Havent gotten around to putting my hats up there.
I unfortunately dont have the money for your lovely creations right now but when I do what would be the best way to get a hold of you? Etsy or Deviant?

Awww, I love this one with its puffy stick-out spots. It looks gorgeous and the mane is like a flowing cloud!! I love the elegant pose you gave it in the top left corner too. I love how this one feels like it is made of cobblestone almost.:blackrose:

Thank you, Aria! :heart: Haha, the puffed out look is kind of incidental, but I'm glad you like the texture it brings to the pattern. :) I think I am finally understanding how to do manes like this. It was very strange at first. Heehee, I'm delighted you like that pose! It's fun to play with them. ^__^

By the way, how are your commissions coming? The money I thought I would get "soon" hasn't appeared yet, but it's being looked into. Sadly, I destroyed my phone this week so now I have to make an unexpected purchase. :( But I'm still planning on commissioning you, don't give up on me!

Yes I think the puffs really add to the overall fun of it! I love textur in things.

Oh do not worry I completely understand (obviously) Haha. I am thinking I will probably have my commissions open for quite awhile so no worries at all! And of course I still want to by the kirin too.:blackrose:

I've never actually seen anything like this. Is it hard to make?

Haha, thank you! :D It is fun to see all the different kinds, isn't it?

I hadn't heard of needle felting until relatively recently either. It's not really that hard to make, just time-consuming.
