Creative Paperclay® Decorated Bird House

With summer here there will be a lot of entertaining out side on the deck or patio.  Make this cute bird house as a a part of a center piece.
Close ups of the bird house!

First roll out the Creative Paperclay® thin and cut leaves and flowers. Set aside to dry at least 24 hours or slow dry in the oven at a very low tempreture.
After they are dry,prepare them for painting. Sand each piece to remove unwanted edges.
Paint the Creative Paperclay® pieces with Sakura Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Mixers...

large leaves -  Terri Sproul Mixers Pearl Green
tiny flowers - Terri Sproul Mixers Citrine Pearl
large flowers - Terri Sproul Mixers Rose pearl
small leaves - Terri Sproul Mixers Tanizanite Pearl mixed with Shimmer Citrine! Let dry.
 
 Paint the birds with Terri Sproul Mixers Aquamarine Pearl and set aside to dry.
Cover unpainted wooden bird house with old sheet music adhering with Sakura Crystal Lacquer.
Layer the large leaves on the top of the bird house to create a roof, adhering with Sakura Crystal Lacquer.
Finally add the Creative Paperclay® flowers, small leaves and birds... one, two or three of these would make a cute table center piece for an outdoor summer dinner.
Enjoy crating with Creative Paperclay®.
