In 1956, the mother of Michael Nesmith from The Monkees invented the first correction fluid in her kitchen. As a typist she found she was able to correct mistakes with tempera paint she mixed in a kitchen blender. She named this prototype “Mistake Out” and produced small batches at home for her co-workers. After being fired from her job in 1958, she devoted her time to Mistake Out and eventually offered to sell the rights to IBM, who declined. By 1968, the now-renamed Liquid Paper was profitable and in 1979 the company was sold to Gillette for close to $50M.

From HOW I FELT
A series of 200 felt prints I created during 2019 & 2020.
Each size is a limited edition of 50 pieces.
Every work is hand-printed in Sydney on recycled acoustic felt.
I sign, title, number, date, and frame every print myself.
Not only is felt warm and fuzzy, it improves a room’s acoustics.

FRAMING

All How I Felt prints come in the frame colour shown.*
Only 70 × 50 and 50 x 50 cm prints are available unframed or framed.
10 × 15, 21 × 30 and 23 x 23 cm frames include a stand and hanging hook.
L-pins or a hanging brace are the easiest way to hang unframed prints on plaster or wooden walls. A frame is better if your wall is brick or concrete.
None of my frames include glass because felt looks better naked. 
I can provide clear acrylic (not glass) and a sealed backing for $30 if the work will be hung in a moist environment like a beach house. Click here to add acrylic to your framed order.
*Unless otherwise specified.

SHIPPING

Sydney art lovers can avoid shipping costs by collecting work and paying cash at my studio in Darlinghurst. Otherwise shipping is calculated at check-out. Each print is hand-made so please allow 2-4 weeks for domestic delivery and 3-5 weeks for international. Let me know if you need a piece urgently as I may have one already printed.

CUSTOM WORK / COMMISSIONS

I’m happy to quote on custom felt prints featuring your choice of subject matter in any size. I also work with interior designers to create feature walls that visually and acoustically enhance living or work spaces.
