So like many of you I fell in love with the little ETSY redlightdesigns birds but don’t have $200 to drop on a cake topper so I bought a bucket of clay for $12 scuplted 6 birds and picked the best two they still nedd to be painted and dressed up but I’m in love with them
I got the nest for $5 from an eBay seller and the moss at JoAnn’s for $2….
They crack quite a bit while they’re drying and I had to back fill them. I also found that once they were completely dry I could buff them with a wet paper towel to get a smoother look. The one on the left below has been buffed, the one on the right has not.
Scupting the first one with careful attention to the orignals…
