Copper Gilded Clay Feathers

clay and copper feather diy
After my recent exploits with air drying clay I decided to refresh the window decoration that has been up for 3 years, the driftwood display. Copper is bang on trend and I never get tired of feathers. They work so well as I hate to leave a window bare but didn’t want to block the light from that area as it backs onto a courtyard and is already a dark part of the room. They would work equally as well hanging on a wall as a decorative piece.
