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. Continue reading Polymer Clay Bird Tutorials: The Friesen Project Revisited

It’s Friesen Friday once again (insert wild applause, cheers, laughter, and dance moves here) …. I hope that you have been having a good time making birds over the past two months.  I know that I have!  Today’s project is not from the “Birds of a Feather” Book, but examples of it can be found in the birds book with fancy birds, plain birds, and exciting birds of each of every page!  This bird tutorial is actually from Christi Friesen’s other awesome book, “Polymer Clay & Mixed Media Together at Last.”  Make sure to get this book before it goes out of print.  Let’s get started, shall we?!

Well, yesterday was quite the day around here.  And because I love you all so much … despite that we lost power for over 4 hours in the afternoon, I was so dedicated to each one of you that I had to finish my owl.  So in the picture above you can see the bright and shiny studio that I usually get to work in …. along with yesterday’s claying conditions.  YIPES!  So, without further ado, let’s get on with our projects today, shall we?

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!

SCULPTED BIRDS TUTORIAL

Lil Blob Birds Tutorial by KatersAcres for the FriesenProject

The much awaiting and highly anticipated “Birds of a Feather” book by Christi Friesen has begun.  (*Three Cheers for Christi’s awesome book*).  I think I mentioned in my last post, thought it always bears repeating, that this is my favorite Christi Friesen book.  Perhaps it’s because I really enjoy making birds, or maybe it’s because I enjoy feeding birds, or maybe it’s because my favorite food is chicken?!?! Whatever the reason, I am so excited to kick off this month with Christi’s awesome “Lil’ Blob Birds” from her book.  These are so addicting … I made 6 the first sitting and about a dozen in the next.  They are fun!  So get your clay out, grab a cup of coffee, and let’s get started!
