1. Spray your foam pad with your soapy water solution. This ensure the fibres will temporarily stick to your resist.
2. Gently pull at your wool to create tufts, about as wide as your circle. Be sure to genty pull. If you pull tightly, the fibres won’t budge! I always prefer to pull the tufts as I work; creating hundreds of tufts and piling them up before you begin only gets messy and they can be hard to pick up when yours hands are wet. Also, it is important that the fibres in the tufts stay as straight as possible. Arrange your tufts so they overlap the edge of the circle quite as shown. Make a full circle. You can combine the different types of wool here!
3. Lay more tufts down horizontally!
4. Spray all of the fibres with your hot soapy water solution. Be generous!
