DIY Project: Bird Ring Replica


modeling clay and x-acto knife



bird and my reference



Ring band and Birdie's eyes (which came from butterfly hair clips that used to be my grandmother's)



Cured birdie, branch, and ring band


Hey guys here are some progress shots of the Bird Ring, it was pretty simple to put together for the majority of the project. The only hard part was sculpting the bird. Its not exact of course but it think he'll look great once the the band is painted, lacquered and he's gold leafed. Stay tuned for shots of the finished product!!!!
