Are these not the best? So, Cathy used low fire white clay. We did only one firing. After they were bisqued, Cathy spray painted them all brown. Then she busted out the acrylic paint to add the details to the feathers, faces and backs. A clear sealer was added before they went home.

Love that I was able to share these with you from our Maclay Lower School Art Teacher, Cathy Hicks! Perfect timing as we are all in the throws of celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends.
