Yay - this week I am on time with my bird!
I really enjoyed making this one. I shaped some cork clay into a bird form and then painted layers of Art Clay Silver paste to create a hollow bead birdie. I just build up extra layers to for the wings. I had some paste which was quite lumpy so I just went with it and actually I do like the effect it gave with just a little smoothing out.
As there is no back to this piece as such you have to have a photo of the rear end instead! ;-)
I have not yet decided what to make it into. Possibly a pendant but I am thinking maybe a brooch.
Here is my Haiku poem for it...
Tiny little bird
One of natures great wonders
Will you sing for me?
