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.

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.
