This is when i came across New Zealand based, English artist Angela Singer.
She uses various animals, having them donated to her by collectors when the taxidermy has been damaged.
Tried a bit of origami, but i don't think ill go down that route... not yet anyway.
Cotton-wool feathers with wire...
And trying the sewing again, this time on white card but without a food on the sewing machine, a bit of free hand sewing.
I will carry on with the cotton-wool feathers and the sewing, perhaps trying some layering and different material to sew with and different ways to attach the cotton cool to the wire. I used cotton-wool as it is very light, feather like.
