Birds by Zhiah Birds by Zhiah
sparrow, great titmouse

The bodies are needle felted; legs, eyes and beaks are made of
air drying clay.
These little guys are going to be a christmas present for my grandparents.

wow, die sind ja super realistisch! ich hab ja mal einen Filzkurs bei einer Künstlerin gemacht, die unter anderem total lebensechte gefilzte Vögel in Originalgröße hatte, und deine kommen denen schon ziemlich nahe!

Danke :D. Im Moment stehen sie bei meinen Großeltern auf dem Fensterbrett und verwirren die Vögel auf der anderen Seite des Festers ;).

Wie hieß denn die Künstlerin, bei der du den Kurs gemacht hast?

hmm, ich weiß ihren Namen nicht mehr...
Jedenfalls hatte sie eine ganze Menge toller Filztiere, unter anderem ein schwarz-weißes Kaninchen das so lebensecht aussah dass man sich wundert warum es so lange still sitzt :D

SO BEAUTIFUL! amazing amazing work! I love these little guys. have you ever seen a painted bunting? they're definitely called painted for a reason :P

these two look so nice, wonderful work! :love:

I just googled the painted bunting, very pretty. Most of the birds around here are rather grey or brown. I think the most colourful indiginous bird would be the blue tit, but I could be mistaken...I don't really know a lot about birds.

I don't think we have painted buntings either. I saw it on a bird calender :XD: The two pretties birds we have, I think, are the oreo and the bluebird. My favorites though are the black capped chickadee and the starling :P I think they're pretty.
