Carved Yellow Goldfinch and Robin

I carved these birds during a bird carving course through our local town recreation center. Basswood was used to hand carve the birds. They are painted first using one coat of shellac, followed by a thin coat of white gesso, and then acrylic paint. This is my first experience with hand carving.

Way cool! I like how you’ve displayed them. What did you make the legs and feet out of?

The legs and feet were provided by the instructor. They are made of wire.

This is awesome I love it! ?
