One of my paper mached birds from this swap finally arrived at his new home and it was suggested that he get his own post.
This is the gallery thread for that swap.

Here are a couple shots I did of Karl before I sent him on his way.




These two guys were a previous swap incarnation of the IYP swap as well.

They are all done in the same manner. Paper mache on a newspaper base with lamp components.

Sorry about the size on these, I did resize but I don't think they liked it so well.

I looooove the crown! You should make crowns that would fit on the other birds you've made so they can change up their look should they be feeling spunky.  Grin

I love the color transition, too...purple to green. Very nice.

Hehe, it's funny you say that Aroze, I actually felt guilty giving him a crown and not the others. I have been thinking about wardrobe accessories though.  Grin

I may just have to give that some thought. I wonder though if I could get it so that it wouldn't wobble as there is a definite "roundness" to the top of any of the birds' head.

Mine. Mine. Mine! Tongue

Oh Karl, how I love you and your little crown!

Babs you are so talented! I'm so lucky! Grin

Here he is inspecting his new surroundings...


Is that a base drying in the background of your last shot? Cheesy

Haha, no, It's a birbath! I never noticed that was back there. Mostly as it's VERY back there!

I love the shots you've got of Karl, that green grass makes him really pop!

OMGosh, I love him soooo much!!!  The color is fantastic and he has so much personality!!

How did you do the eyes?    

Oh, wow, I've never done paper mache, but I might have to try, I would love a bird sculpture.

Thanks Jatoha!

The eyes on my original ones are all paper mache. I like the "rustic" feel of them that way.

The eyes on Karl I smoother over with paper clay for a smoother look and then painted them.

I'm really torn between the different looks of the eyes. I kind of like both types.

These little birds are marvelous! I think I like the eyes on Karl the best.

This reminds me of something out of Mirror Mask.
