It has been so long since I made any other item in polymer clay than bracelets. I wanted to give a little present to a friend. As I came over the bird tutorial by Jessica Jane, I gave it a try.
For some reason birds seems to be hard to form in clay. At least to me - but the tutorial made it a bit easier. It is all about trying and trying some more. That is how polymer clay works.
I have to work with the form a bit more to get it in my fingers. The birds are textured, cured and antiqued with acrylic paint.
It was so nice to be in my studio and actually make something. Hope to make more of these to have ready for gifts and surprises for others.
So, off you go little bird. Fly into the heart of my friend.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly
