I made a little bird for the OTB Swap. My partner had pinned some birds done in this style, so I went with it! - he's made from polymer clay and then painted and embellished with vintage snaps and watch works and some "antique" papers. He's sitting on an old wooden spool.


While doing this bird I got a few requests for MORE birds.  So far I've only made one more, but have been working on another one today.  This is bird number two:



He's  done with all watch parts and the same paper.  I also tried another method of making his legs.  He's also on an old spool - hope I can find more of those - I really love the look of them!
