Bird Skulls by soulofwinter Bird Skulls by soulofwinter
Lately I've been learning resin casting, and for my first cast I needed some sort of small thing to cast, that wasn't too challenging, but also something I'd want to have myself. Tick (the bird skull my mom found under her porch a while back) would make a neat pendant, but I was terrified of casting the actual skull, so I ended up making a Sculpey replica of the skull and casting that. (There are a few parts I had to thicken due to how easy it would be to break, bird bones are so fragile x_X; ) These are the casts I ended with, painted more realistically, as if it was a skull found while on an adventure in the forest :D These were for sale at RMFC and are still for sale at a local bead store!

Edit: Sold out and retired

No worries, since these guys are retired and the picture was personal work, I don't mind. I'm glad you were able to find it of use! :) It is strange that they're showing up in stock images though, you're not the only one either - I'll have to take a look and see if I slipped on the category they're submitted into.

What sort of material did you use for sculpting these? Clay? I would like know, I'm willing to make a hawk skull pendant.

Whoops, updating the info completely escaped my mind! The bird skulls are actually retired now, so I won't be making anymore. But if you're looking for bird skull casts and necklaces, usually Skullery has some neat skull casts up for sale: [link]

May I use for a Manipulation? It will be here on :dalogo: & If so dou you want credit on the image or in Description?

Well, I'm not sure I'm really comfortable with use of these in a photo manipulation since these are sculptures, not actual birds skulls, and are not meant as stock images/resources. Is the manipulation for personal use or for profit?

Personal use, and if you let me, I'll credit you on image, and it will be here on dA.

Ah, okay. Normally I'd say no, but since it's personal use here on dA and since the sculpt is a general bird skull (as opposed to a specific design), I'll say yes to this one :)
