A bird in the hand……

Made by Jon Keller

This project was an evolution. During the inter I had made a paper mache hand . Originally it as just going to be a paper mache hand . But over time I started thinking that the hand needed something . After much consideration I decided to add a bird .

The hand was made with a wire frame and brown paper bag paper mache .

The bird is a ball of aluminum foil , with a bent paper clip for leg supports , covered with paper mache. The wings were made using card stock.

The base is a cheese cutting board with a wooden dowel running through the hand and into the base.

Acrylic paint paint job , finished with 2 coats of matte varnish .

  1. Somehow I need to mark this page. That is a fantastic bird, and I thank you for showing us how you created it. Great.
