Angry Birds (Tan-style): The making of

The Angry Birds craze has taken over our household lately. Kai has played Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and he is now playing Angry Birds Rio. He also wants Angry Birds, in clay.

The body and the beak were the easiest to mould, obviously; the crown and the tail feathers were harder.

Then I popped them into the toaster oven together with a bird and a boulder that he made.

After baking them for about 25 minutes, I drew their faces.

And painted them.

And voila!

I don't expect the birds to last very long. They are made with clay after all. True enough, Kai dropped the red bird shortly after I handed him the bird. Red bird fractured his tail feathers (i.e. the tail feathers broke away from the body). He cried and we had to send the bird to the ER doctor -- Terence -- immediately. Terence glued it back, and it is now recuperating in the hospital -- Kai's bookshelf.

I'll keep you posted of its progress.
