Baby Horn-Rimmed Owl by SeanAvery Baby Horn-Rimmed Owl by SeanAvery
Baby owl swooping down on a cloudy day ...

Sorry the photos are a little dark ...

Width: 35cm
Height: 25 cm
Depth: 13 cm

CD shards (over 40 CDs used)
Wire mesh frame
Hot glue
Gold paint
1 week work time

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural feather pattern. They usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done!

This is great!
Mind maybe making a tutorial of any of those beautiful ones?
It would be great to, I'd really like to get rid of those CDs though, but still get something from it. :)
