I started with a wooden birdhouse and used textured paste thru a new stencil. Then I mixed some aqua paint with my textured paste and added some mini beads for added texture. I spread this in spots on all four sides.
Next I mixed a light brown with some texture pasts and spread in spots on the sides. Into the brown paste I stuck a few bronze beads so they could give the house a little shine.
I used white clay to make the birds. After they baked, I painted each with the aqua and gave them some orange highlights. A thin glaze added a nice finish. Beads were used for their eyes.
