A Little Bluebird

Last night, I spent a some time creating this little guy. I ordered a set of enamel water colors and was anxious to try them out. What fun!

I cut a little bird shape out of copper, put down a base of white enamel on the front and transparent on the back. Then I brushed on a coat of blue enamel water color - it took on a feathery look. I did several coats and firings to achieve the opacity I wanted.

Now, I can't wait to try something else.
