… you know I used to have a bare naked bird for real. A budgie named Buddy… he moulted once, dropped every single feather except one or two on his little tiny head, and he never got them back. A bare nake, ‘plucked’ looking bird. Oh poor little buddy. He lived a few years before he went to birdie heaven, where hopefully his angel wings were feathered!
Back to my bird… I made this little guy this weekend, using air dry clay. I’m not sure how I’ll paint him yet. I want to make a whole bunch more… it’s kinda zen like to play with mud :) very relaxing. (click the pics cuz the thumbnails cut off the beaks)
He’s kinda rough still, not yet sanded smooth – but I don’t think I want him totally smooth, because I like the rough look.
