Owls Ready for Duty
These were pretty simple to make and also, I think, pretty successful. I kept the mica powders to a minimum, only using black around the eyes, antique bronze on either side of the feather tufts above the beak, and rose gold on the beak itself. I considered antiquing them but have decided not to. It will be too difficult to wipe the antiquing away between the feet and it will look odd if I avoid putting the antiquing paint there. So, they'll stay as they are.
