This bird is made from a polystyrene egg and ball which are attached and covered with papier-mâché pulp. When dry, two long legs and feet made from stub wires are pushed into the bird. It is then painted with Plus Color craft paint.
Guide step 1

Soak papier-mâché powder in water in the ratio: 3 parts powder to 1 part water.

Step 2.

Place the ball on top of the egg for a bird's body and cover the joint with papier-mâché pulp. Shape a beak and wings along the back.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
Double over three thick stub wires and gather them with a thin stub wire. Make the feet by twisting thin stub wires around each end of the assembled stub wires approx. 4 cm from the ends. Bend approx. 1 cm from the wound-around stub wires, so that each foot is approx. 3 cm long. Push the legs into the bird and cover this area with papier-mâché pulp. Leave to dry.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
Paint the bird all over with white Plus Color craft paint. (A TIP: The long legs work as a practical handle during this procedure). Leave to dry. Mix the white paint with black for a light grey colour and dab the paint onto the bird with a foam stencil brush. Leave to dry.
