Because Papier-Mache solves everything...

I made this for my partner in the One Tiny Bird Thing Swap.



Made of Paper Mache and painted. I made the feathers on top out of embroidery thread, wire and modge podge. The Ohm symbol is made of shrinky dink and paint. I didn't make the frame.







Thanks for looking!

Super cool! I love all of the bright colors. The way you did the feathers was so clever! I'm sure your partner is thrilled.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
