The Making of the Blackbird
View over the making of a free-form copper wire blackbird by wire artist Nicola of Earth Balance Craft. Look through each of the stages from sketching, to wire construction of the body, tail and wings. Before the patina solution is applied, and after the bird has finished his bath, the final polish and set with wax.
