    i am fooling with making a paintbrush from some of my billygoats wool. i've made them before from yucca leaves. also maybe doll hair. or stuffing?

    the texture is fab.

    anyone else have any wild or not so wild ideas to throw in?

    anyone else make crafts from various animals?

    oh my goodness pickles, I read that title and thought you had somehow figured out a way to let the billy paint! Hey, the zoos do it with elephants. [​IMG]

    Yeah, me too. I envisioned a goat with paint all over it's beard, and some of it's goat-head-hair tied back in a stylish ponytail. With paint on the ponytail. And a beret. Also, the goat in my mind had a paintbrush in is mouth and was painting a lovely meadow scene.[​IMG]

    Only if you also let the billy run thru it after walking in purple paint. [​IMG]

    But as to your topic, how 'bout something similiar to cornhusk dolls, just made out of billygoat's wool?
