Another Addiction !

He's called The Protector !after the style of
Another one for my Mad Mamma Group .

I just love making these birds,I think its mainly because I can use very nearly all the materials in my stash,this one I used Tin lid,clay,chain,beads,wicker bits the cat pulled off my chair (lucky or not so lucky lol) paper collage,gold wire,Anita's 3D gloss etc etc(mixed media?)......I didnt have a theme or plan when I started,the main thing was, finding a birds head, then it all started to come together.The key I coloured with alcohol inks,useing E6000 for all my gluing as it was going onto the tin lid,most of it,the wings are clay made in a mold,and painted with Metalic paints..........I need to replenish my stash with old jewellery,chains,keys etc,so maybe off to the second hand market tomorrow !
