Gale the Mechanical Birdie by monsterkookies Gale the Mechanical Birdie by monsterkookies
"A mechanical wonder. Wrought of the purest gold and finest jewels..."

This mechanical birdie was created for the La Jolla Playhouse to be used as a prop in one of their plays - The Nightingale. He's definitely a very dramatic birdie - just look at those flourishing feathers near his eyes!

Although this creature looks to be made from metal, he is not - he is completely handsculpted from polymer clay with the addition of a few metal findings and coiled wire legs. This piece has been glazed with a satin finish for a slight sheen and durability.

:bulletpurple: Custom Mechanical Birdies are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.

I CANNOT believe this is made of polymer clay! How do you get such beautiful finishing on the sculpture details (Especially the feather!)? Absolutely gorgeous work! :O
