Hummingbird commission — one of the last sculptures I'll be doing for a little while!

CD shards (over 40 CDs used)
Wire mesh frame
Hot glue
Gold paint
1 week work time
Hair clip (beak)

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural feather pattern. They usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done!
