New bird on the block

DB has finished his hummingbird for the fence outside our kitchen window:
We only had one pearl paint, the pink, but if he makes another one sometime, we shall use all pearl paint as the pink has a lovely shimmer to it.

It isn't based on real colours, just as close he could get with what he had.

    1. He wishes he had a band saw. This is drawn and sawn, mainly by hand then sanded to get it where he wants. The beak, tail and wings are seperate pieces from the body. This is his second bird for this year.

  2. It's really beautiful, he's clearly very talented. Does he sell them, or do it just for your garden?

    1. No, he couldn't make them quickly enough to sell. He does it for his pleasure in making and my pleasure to look at.
