Teeny Weeny bird beads

I was looking through my old  Great British Bird book and took a fancy to these birds.
Top left - a thrush, Top right - a pincet duck
Bottom left - a seagull and bottom right a wren.

They have holes from top to bottom - but I think that I have made them a bit too small!
But I had so much fun experimenting with some white 'leftover' bits of polymer clay.

Painted with water colours and sealed with Rennaisance wax which gives them a lovely sheen

OMG Lottie they are adorable, I love , love .... LOVE the blue one - a handsome chappie indeed.

Actually, that little fat chap bottom right is super cute too.

I've been working on some bigger clay ones and should get them out of the kiln tomorrow (one is for you).
