Cockatiel by SolarDiamond Cockatiel by SolarDiamond
A sweet little Cockatiel nestled amongst a pair of purple Flag Irises.

The first ornament I've made in quite a while that wasn't a custom order. Whew! This was super fun to sculpt, as it has the neat little crest that is so expressive. One day I'd like to have a 'tiel for a buddy.

My ornaments are sculpted with polymer clay and painted with acrylics, sealed with matte varnish, and the eyes sealed with brilliant gloss glaze for a realistic shine.

Dimensions (approx):
3"h x 3"w x 1/4"thick
76mm x 76mm x 6mm thick
