MAY/JUNE 2018

Habitats are something I don’t get to do much of. My prices seem to be high enough that clients would rather have two or three birds done on a stick, than one bird in a nice habitat or glass case. But on rare occasions, I get to do a habitat piece and this is one of those pieces! The problem with habitats is most people seem to make them so big, you almost don’t see the specimen. Or, they use the wrong materials for where the species was found. But, my favorite, is shoving Spanish moss around the feet to hide the wires! I have lots of Spanish moss around my yard. It hangs down from trees—It doesn’t sit in piles on the ground! And please, don’t lay habitat materials in square configurations. Picture the items as if you were to just toss them in the air, and how they fall is how you will place them. Today, we’ll make a coastal scene for King Eiders. I’m making it as small as I can, but it has to be big enough to hold 3 birds— a simple rock scene with the tide slowly coming in.
