Papier Mache Birds!!

Our first session was spent wading up newspaper and using wire to create bird like shapes.  five hours went by pretty fast and we were not done sooo..we had homework!  I spent many hours in my studio completing my three little birds so I would be ready for the decorating phase.
We gathered again a few weeks later to add color.  I had painted my birds black and added accent colors with our special papers...the other two ladies completely covered their birds in collage papers. We added hats, necklaces, and sparkly eyes..pantaloons and neck pieces....yarns were wound around was a very fun day!
