I have this bird already since the Timster cruise last year, so I thought that it was about time to do something with it. I first glued some dictionary paper on the bird with Modpodge, then I painted it with blue metallic paint. When it was dry I dipped my finger in some gold paint and lightly rubbed over the blue paint. I embellished the bird with cheese cloth, lace, watchparts, some Tim idea-ology and Vintaj charms. The stand I painted first with brown paint, then white paint, then sanded it and again rubbed some gold paint on it.
