Sketches of crows, some with open beaks.
And a bird with raised wings.
A crow, with an open beak and raised wings.
And a little bit of fluff around the head made from some synthetic horse hair-like stuff from Stephanie (check out her beautiful crow pillow!). Speaking of Stephanies, see another Stephanie’s beautiful crow here.
My crow’s legs are a bit different from other birds I’ve made. I’m doing some experimenting with paperclay, trying to get a bird leg that is thinner and less bulky than I’ve been able to achieve by wrapping fabric strips around the wire. I’m reading this doll making book and though I rarely make actual dolls, it is so excellent! It’s like taking a class on soft sculpture which is so perfect for me because I am not able to leave the house to take a class right now.
