In honor of my new chickens I started making these little chicken characters from paper clay. They’re small – about 1 3/4″ tall. So far I’ve only gotten around to painting the one. My intention is to keep the painting on all of them quite minimal. Do you like her glasses? I made them from rusted wire (to match the feet) and they have stylish star-shaped rhinestones on the sides.
The crown on the second one is from a metal bird that I didn’t finish at a metal-working class. I think it works fine here!
I have noticed two things about my own chickens who arrived as day-old chicks. The first is how fast they grow. And the second is how big their feet are – a handy feature for getting the little sculptures to stand properly!
