Day 242: Inquisitive Bird, upcycled sculpture
This sculpture thing is kind of fun- I have to admit it. Today I looked at my pile of scraps and asked myself if I could turn them into a bird. First, I wrapped a bit of batting up into a roll, tied it and snipped it to create a loose body shape. Then I soaked the batting with matte medium and covered it in vintage sewing patterns. Next came hymnal feathers and beak, yarn cowl (perhaps it’s a hipster bird who knits on the subway), lace wingtips, wire feet and straight pin eyes.
As I placed him on his legs, he seemed to be tilting his head to the side, (possibly asking me why he was wearing a cowl and lace as a boy bird) and it was a sweet little moment. Voila! Inquisitive bird was born!

He is darling! I love how you are just doing everything and anything, and it all looks fab!
I love him, Marianne!! So darn adorable!
He’s adorable! Maybe the cowl is so he doesn’t lose his singing voice…
Can I use this picture for a school project on upcycling?Cuz this is quite a good example of upcycling.
Of course, thanks for asking & visiting the blog.
