Oh, Baby, Baby

Part Two: Painting

By: Tom Baldwin
Make your babies come alive

In the first article, from the Summer 2020 issue, I reviewed the process for carving chickadee and Carolina wren fledglings, leaving you with one if not two unpainted and legless baby birds. In this tutorial, I will show you how to remedy these issues. Both carving projects will employ these brushes: #0 Princeton flat shader, #10/0 Princeton liner, #2 Princeton round, #2 sable round, #6 sable round, ¼" angle shader, and a soft grip #10 short shader brush.
