A Bird with a Mohawk

 I am ramping up to start my final project in my Fiber Arts program and am making lots of tests.  This latest bird is needle felted wool over polyester over a wire armature.  I used fabric stiffener on the outside layer to try and protect the surface.
He's about 9" tall.  I like that the stiffener doesn't change how the piece looks but I am still not sure if I am going to use it on my final.   The eyes are taxidermy bird eyes that I ordered online.  I love how they look!
