I used texture paste to create a 3D effect in the feathers and took inspiration from Donna Crawshaw to create this piece.

This piece is composed of three separate MDF boards covered in newspaper print as a background. I used tissue paper and glue to create a fleshy texture on the comb and I used texture paste and the acrylic in a specific way to create the texture in the feathered body. This image is of one of my own five chickens.
