Stylized Hummingbirds

Posted by Julie Benner on February 21, 2013 at 7:00 PM



My niece is a senior and last weekend was her final appearance in her studio's yearly original ballet. I wanted to make her something special for the occasion. She loves peacocks, but I wasn't sure how to make small peacocks that would look light and airy enough for earrings.

 

Then I thought of hummingbirds. Hummingbirds come in a variety of jewel-tone colors, so I knew I could use similar iridescent blues and greens, even purples, and they would make wonderful earrings. The only problem that I could see was the fragility of the tiny birds in polymer clay. The beaks would be bad enough, but what about the wings? And how to make them appear delicate and give the illusion of movement?

 

After some thought, I decided to stylize the tiny hummingbird sculptures, and use texture for the wings, instead of actually sculpting them in polymer clay. When hummers fly, their wings move so fast they become a blur to the eye anyway. I made a few pendants and a couple of pairs of earrings in this manner, so that I could put some in my Etsy store as well. I am very happy with the results. The pictures really don't do them justice, and my niece loved her earrings, which I presented to her after the ballet in lieu of flowers.
