Hoooo, me?

I made a new little friend recently .

Unfortunately we didn't get to know each other very well as he was a gift and was soon winging his way
(by post, not magic!) to his new home on the Sunshine Coast .

He adorns an adjustable ring, and is made from one of these resins . . .
First I glued him onto the ring blank using E6000 (but any strong craft glue will do) , and let him dry .
To give the details a bit of definition , I brushed him over with white StazOn ink .
I pinched a few drops of my son 's Citadel model paint to give him a silver beak (to match the ring) and added 2 black half pearls to make his eyes shine .

So cute .
Luckily I have a few more owls , so I think there could be a little friend in my future too .

P.S. "A wise old owl sat on an oak; the more he saw, the less he spoke; The less he spoke, the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird? "  Traditional
