Friesen Friday: Peacocks
Posted on June 21, 2013 in 2013 Friesen Project by Katie Oskin
POLYMER CLAY PEACOCKS
For the summer months, the Friesen Project is going to look a little bit different. As I explained in the opening Friesen Friday of June, many of the tutorials for the Christi Friesen projects are coming from online resources. This being said, today’s project is not a complete tutorial. The tutorial can be found elsewhere online (see project information and link below). I had a lot of fun creating my polymer clay peacocks, in fact I made several of them. So get out your clay and let’s get started!
If you have not gotten your PDF copy of Christi Friesen’s “Birds of a Feather” book, please order the book here direct from Christi.

Christi Friesen Polymer Clay Peacock
Today’s complete tutorial for your polymer clay peacock can be found on the FireMountain Gems website. It is a tutorial to make your own fantasy theme peacock necklace, which Christi aptly named “Peacock Pizzazz.”
Remember that this project is not just about duplicating Christi’s style, but it is about finding your own voice. You will notice that in the two peacocks that I made for this week, while they implement many of Christi’s techniques, they are definitely “mine” with their whimsical expressions and looks.
My Polymer Clay Peacock Projects
These two peacocks are special. One of them goes on an adventure with Parker and the other one is a gift for my friend who raises peacocks!
As a special bonus for all of the Friesen Project participants, come on over to my Etsy store and see the newest Parker StoryBook Scene, featuring one of these cute polymer clay peacocks. But not just any peacock, a perfectly speckled white albino peacock, one of the rarest of Parker’s finds at Kater’s Acres.
