Polymer Clay Bird Tutorials

Fancy Bird Tutorial by KatersAcres | For Polymer Clay, Sugar Paste, Gum Paste, Modeling Clay, & Much More

Polymer Clay Bird Tutorials REVISITED! Since we are in the Mixed Media Book, I got a request from several of you asking if we could “please, oh please” make birds again. In the case of a couple of those requests, it was because you took time off from the Friesen Project this summer. For others of you it was because you just love birds that much. In either case, we’re going to be doing birds again this week! So break out the clay, it’s time for a bird tutorials.
