How to Make a Sitting Bird Out of Clay
A clay bird can be especially difficult to create because their bodies are shown as an oval that has lots of details needed and their tail is feathery, which is hard to shape out. But he information in this article will help you learn how to create a bird out of clay.
Gather your supplies shown in the Things You'll Need section shown below.
Start off with any color piece of clay.Roll it into a ball, then shape it into an oval shape.
Get another piece of clay the same color or a different color.It should be a bit smaller than the other piece. Roll it into a slightly thick cylinder. At the top, bend it forward and make it circle shaped. This will be the neck and head. Stick it to the body.
Get a very small piece of clay whatever color you like and shape it into a triangle.Make small separate "hairs". These will be the tail feathers. Stick it to the back of the body on top.
For wings, you can either add lines to make it look like it has wings, or shape some clay into wings and stick it to the side.
Get two small pieces of clay.Shape them into slightly thin cylinders. Make toes at the bottom of the cylinder to make legs for the bird. For details, add marks to the legs. Stick these at the bottom of the body. Bend them down and flatten them a bit to make the bird look like it is sitting.
Shape another small piece into a triangle.Add two holes on top of it for nostrils, and separate it into two pieces to create a beak. You can also just add a line. Stick this nearly at the bottom of where the face will be.
Take a white piece of clay.Roll two of them up and then flatten them. Do the same for smaller pieces of black clay and flatten them on the white clay. Stick them on the face for eyes.
If you'd like, make a nest and put the bird in it to make it look like it is actually sitting down.
- Add details, such as dots, lines, or even designs would look great.
- Consider using the same color clay for the body, head, wings, and tail so it looks a bit more neat. The beak and legs could be different colors.
- You could add different colors to the bird if it is going to have designs.
- You could make the bird look like it is sitting down by folding its legs down.
- If the clay is sticky, dip your hands in water every few minutes.
- Consider using a mat to make your clay bird on so it won't stick.
- If you want to make an ornament, add a hook at the top and bake it in the oven so it will become an ornament.
