This is gorgeous! Do you actually add curve to the feathers, or do you create the illusion with the armature? What a lovely use for the old CDs and DVDs.

Glad you like it. The CD shards don't bend, but you can layer them in a way that makes it appear as if it's curving. =)

Much appreciated, Em. The lady I made this for actually didn't like it so I had to make another one. =) I'm so over making hummingbirds...

Thank you! It does look incredible when you put it in the sun — it bounces colours all over the room.

Absolutely beautiful ^_^
I'm curious, do you make the hanging part first? Or do you do that at the end? Or maybe somewhere in the middle of the process?

Thanks! I do it right at the beginning, I usually have a pretty clear understanding of where the sculpture's centre of gravity will be. =)
