Bright Red Sparkly Cardinal Bird Hand-Sculpted Christmas Ornament Polymer Clay
This Bright Red Sparkly Cardinal is sitting tall, with his perky crest, looking boldly around. He has a beautiful, satiny smooth finish, with a bit of sparkle to complete his bold look, sure to brighten up a Christmas tree. He would also love to cheer up your home any time of year. He was lovingly sculpted by hand out of Premo 'Red Glitter' polymer clay. No stamps or molds were used in the making of these ornaments, except that my initials were stamped in the bottom as an artist's signature. Because the cardinal was to be an ornament, I inserted a miniature eye hook into his back after I was satisfied with his form and texture. He was then baked. After cooling, I wet-sanded him until he was silky smooth to the touch. His black markings and beak were detailed by hand, then he was finished with a coat of clear satin acrylic varnish for a deep shine. A silver jump ring was attached to the eye hook in each bird's back, so he could be hung from a Christmas tree or in a window, by means of a hook or a cord. Convo me if you want a colored sparkly cord attached in a loop for hanging at no extra charge. There are two of this style of bright red sparkly cardinal ornaments available at this time. As they are handmade, there are minor differences, but both are equally attractive. Each cardinal ornament is between 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 inches (5.7 to 6.4 cm) long, and about 1 1/4 inch (3.2 cm) high.
