Well I have been into birdies lately and my Clayathon hounds tooth contribution was a hounds tooth covered birdy. I made the core from aluminum foil and newspaper which I covered with scrap clay, painted him with white acrylic paint and baked him.
Then I covered the birdy with cane slices
And baked again (his beak is painted with liquid clay tinted with acrylic paint)
I fashioned a birdy perch so Arlene could hang him in her studio without taking up any precious work space.
I antiqued him with a mixture of liquid clay and white acrylic paint for a muted look.
I think he looks content; don’t you?
