Two polymer clay hummingbirds
I made these hummingbirds on commission for Heidi in
Both are sculpted in polymer clay on armatures of wire and
sheet metal. The one on top I painted in oils and tried to ship
held mid-air inside the crate because the paint wasn't dry. It
ruined in transit and I told Heidi I'd make her another one and
it right. That one, below, is painted in acrylics, which take
minutes to dry, so there was no problem with packing it in bubble
I'm told it arrived intact. A lesson hard learned!
