Pelican Posing on a Post

Well, he is a first attempt, but he looks pretty good from afar!

Things I have learned:
Use a thinner gauge wire.
Chicken wire is really nice to mold
'Tie Wires' were a stroke of brilliance!
Vacumn the carpet if you insist on working in the loungeroom
Keep practising

I hope he stays on the post, dont fancy fishing him out of the dam! He seems to be keeping the ducks on edge - they're not hanging around anymore!

Here is a cheat. I used metal potato mashers as a base for his feet, which i then wrapped with wire.

Mellissa, I LOVE this wire pelican! What will you turn your hands to next? Clay sculpture?
