Here’s what you’ll need:

Directions:

Start with a large ball (mine was a little over an inch round) of Sky Blue clay, roll it to make an elongated tear drop. This will be the body of the bird.

Gently bend the the body into somewhat of a crescent shape. Next make a slot into the bottom of the bird by pushing the end of a paint brush or bamboo skewer up into the bottom of the clay. Test to make sure your slot is in the right position and deep enough to keep the bird on a mug.

Make two smaller Sky Blue balls of clay, then roll them into a tear drop shape. Flatten them, and then pinch the point to make a wing shape.

Attach the wings to the side of the bird.

Make a small cone shape out of Red clay, and attach it for the beak.

Bake your clay in the oven to harden it. For Sculpey III; Bake at 275 degrees for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch thickness. My bird was about 1/2 inch thick, so I baked it for 30 minutes.
