 Smiley Im so happy my bird is finished. He has been drying outside for a few days and now he is all ready for his photo shoot and my hubby is going to liquid nail him to our wooden fence.
Im almost tempted to keep him indoors as the spar varnish i used to seal him from the weather, has given him quite a high shine and the painted paper mache now looks like porcelain.
If you are wondering, he is an Australian galah. They are normally pink and grey, but I wanted mine to look more like a concrete statue. Guess I got a bonus of him looking like poreclain. Gets me thinking to what I can make now with that effect.

He's lovely. You are clever to model him so well from papier mch. He does look ceramic. 
I will be interested to know how well the sealant does protect him from the weather and if you ever need to re-apply it.

Great job! I like how he looks. He does look like metal to me. I may have to try this. I bet he'll look awesome sitting on your fence "Alittlemusthave"
