Love everyone's birds! They are all so different, and so charming.

Sculptural isn't really my thing, so my effort is a little different. It's also my first try with the uranium yellow pastel that I got last year and was too scared to use in case I 'wasted' it! I'm pleased with this little chap though.

That's Fab Katherine.

Here's Oliver the Owl, made from a tutorial in SLT.

Am I too late? I don't really mind if I am but I want to share this little guy anyway...

Apologies for the blurred photo but he really should be in those bubbles not hanging about for a photo call. I'll put him in front of the camera again when he comes off the mandrel. I was contemplating birds and a way to make one whilst stuck in traffic today, I had to come home and fire up the torch to have a go (Yes, I have gas again, almost half the price of a popular DIY chain, I'm hoping its ok...)

And here he is off his mandrel and in focus

Aww thanks so much everyone!

Madeline - love your "flowl"!

Katherinem - that's really gorgeous - love the way you've managed the inlay effect - I keep going back and looking at it - reminds me a bit of mosaic!

Aww, thanks. The colour variation comes from the reaction between the blue (which I think was grumpy bear) and the pale yellow, and with itself. It took a couple of goes to add the dots and the stringer branch in the right order!

Yay! Happy Dance!  Cheesy

That's cheered me right up after dropping a paperweight mid-shaping and burning my finger on it earlier today. Ouch.
