I finished a few wooden animal toys today, including this sweet little bird. I'm experimenting with natural paint washes and woodburning details on them to make features permanent and childsafe. As soon as I got done buffing this little bird with some beeswax my husband walked into my studio with the pup. He immediately saw this little bird on the table and practically jumped out of my husband's arms to get to it. He then carried it around with him for several hours. There is nothing more fulfilling than making a toy for your own child and seeing them adore it.
