Hello - I'm looking for ideas on how to attach wire armature feet to a wet felted bird vessel. My inspiration comes from what I learned from Galina Titova's Felting Fantasy Fish course (which is completely fabulous). I can imagine how to make wings and tails but am struggling with how to attach armature feet. Everything I've seen online describes how to attach feet to a needle felted object which is solid. I'm trying to attach to a vessel that is hollow.
One idea I've had is to create "thighs" by attaching lumps of wool at the prefelt stage so that after fulling they will be solid. I can then proceed as described for needle felting: poke a hole and insert the wire using glue to secure it.
I'd appreciate any other thoughts on how I might do this.

You could poke the wires into the vessel, provided you are able to get your hand inside to bend them round. I am assuming that you have not waterproofed the vessel so that you can use it as a liquid container. Ann
