Completed December 30, 2016, in continuing pursuit of the minature birdling. New technique discovered here: the same sort of wax infusion that brings rodent ears to life also adds a level of reality to primary feathers, at least at this scale. Not sure if it’d work for a bigger bird, but I’ve sworn off bigger birds for a while.
Now that the technique is clearly repeatable, this little jewel could be yours right away. Write to the Salamander to discuss details of the adoption.
