ElgaKoster Posted February 21, 2016 Share Posted February 21, 2016 This weekend I had the privilege to participate in Beth Freeman-Kane's first class that she ever taught in her own country, which just happens to mine too, South Africa.It was a fun and relaxed class...mmmh...except for painting that tiny bird! I used to do decorative painting on wood, but that was many, many years ago.This is what we started of with, a very white branch and bird.My branch finished and ready to go into the box.The rest of our Saturday was spent on painting the bird and gluing him to his branch, this is how everything looked at the end of the day.This morning we added some tiny branches and painted them to blend in.Lastly we added some leaves and lichen, I kept my composition fairly simply, some of the students discussed the idea of turning the branch 90 degrees in the box, I liked the idea, did so and discovered this morning that I was the only one who ended up doing so. It was a fun class and I am very happy that it was hosted so close to my home, something totally different from what I usually make. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
