Bullfinch by SeanAvery Bullfinch by SeanAvery
Bullfinch commission ... happy holidays, everyone!

Width: 7cm
Height: 10 cm
Depth: 6 cm

CD shards (over 30 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!

My favourite one of yours so far :D How do you start them off, do you use like a styrofoam base or wires?

First one that I remember having that much paint, but I like it. Nice stance, you defiantly study birds.

I love birds, they're definitely the creatures that I'm most comfortable with! This actually doesn't have any more paint on it than usual, just the beak and feet ... =)

This is amazing! I'd love one some day but sadly the money isnt present currently.

I'd love to see a photo series of how you make them, it would be super interesting!

Glad you like them! Should definitely make a tutorial one day — maybe when I'm not making them for a living! =)

for sure. :3

It's just so different and unique, the results are interesting and would look neat hanging in a window or someplace the light can reflect off it :)
