I recently received a copy of Edwards menagerie: birds by Kerry Lord (thank you Santa!!), I really liked the previous Edwards Menagerie book so was hopeful I would enjoy this new one as much, and I wasn’t disappointed.
There were so many birds I liked I wasn’t too sure where to start but after much thought I decided to start with the toucan, I just love the beak on this, it looks great! I opted to do the feet in a steely blue after looking at some itches of toucans and seeing some do have bluey feet, which was a big saviour to the problem I had of having no grey wool late one evening while making it!
I’ve already got the parts to a few other birds underway so be prepared for quite a few birds to be flocking on here over the next few days!
