Blue bird / swallow

I'm quite pleased with the blue bird design, so i had a pewter bowl i made a few weeks ago when bored. Drew on a bird. Got the hammers and plasticine.

Bit dark i know. Boys is pewter soft after a few copper bowls, like hitting cheese! I had to bash it back down on a flat surface to get the base back to where it should be.

Top tip though, to get the eye, punch it back with a round punch to sink it in, then punch it back out from the back. That gives it a nice outline rather than just a soft swell out.
