Channel-billed Toucan by gummiberri Channel-billed Toucan by gummiberri
My half of an art trade with :icontrogdor-the-burninat:

A Channel-billed toucan made from Super Sculpey and painted with acrylics (the branch is real though). I used a skinner blend for the base, made from scraps of leftover clay, I thought it came out quite nice looking.

Very nice.

How did you texture the feathers?

I'd love to see a tutorial for this.

Thank you :) I'll try remember some photos next time I'm making a bird. I cheated a little for the wing and tail feathers - I sculpted a few different shaped feathers and made moulds from them so the wings got done a lot quicker than the body, which was all done with a needle :)

You're welcome.

Wow, that's cool.

Nothing wrong with using molds.

I do the same thing especially with designs that are hard to copy by hand.

Yep it's a lot more efficient :) Some things like that would drive you mad otherwise...
