Enrol in Habitat & Feet for Bird Carvers
Course Code: ARTS0722
This course is not suitable for beginners. It is recommended that you bring a project bird to work with.
Learn how to construct anatomically correct feet from brass and steel and how to position them accurately on the bird. You will work with modeling epoxy to render the scales and pads, characteristic to the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker, but the information and skills gained will be applicable to other birds as well. If you're new to this course you will make two basic tools to accomplish this. Instruction will also enable you to learn how to create the appropriate habitat, in the form of a tree trunk/base that will compliment the natural habitat of the bird. The above projects will be taken to the painted stage, so that you will learn techniques that will give you very believable habitat and feet.
