Yesterday we featured a Whimsical Hen tutorial using FimoAir Basic in Terra Cotta. This air-dry clay is also available as FimoAir Light and a few other formulas (see our ADC Brands page). The FimoAir Basic is a heavy clay similar to DAS and the FimoAir Light, I'm told, is lighter and softer, similar to Hearty Clay. Today we're sharing a PDF tutorial from Fimo which features these cute, stylized birds created with FimoAir Light.
These small birds are lightweight and hollow and are created with a technique that utilizes plastic bread bags as a temporary armature. They could also be created using a Styrofoam egg armature as shown in the Whimsical Hen tutorial or, vice versa, the chickens could be made as a hollow form using the methods described in today's tutorial!

I hope you enjoy this quick and easy tutorial to create these artistic table decorations. The suggestion contained in the tutorial to use them as dinner party placeholders is a great idea! Or make one as a business card holder with bird holding your card in his beak....possibly a Twitter bird! ;-)
