Realistic Felted Cardinal
About 4" tall and 5" long
Made to order 1-2 weeks

Beautiful and realistic cardinal, he is completely made by hand. Needle felted from ethically and locally sourced wool. Created over a wire armature, his tail and feet are able to be gently posed. Without using molds, I sculpt the beak from silk clay which is then painted and finished using a coat of satin glaze. I strive to create a realistic bird and consistently reference photos of the real thing. His feet and claws are wire wrapped in wool and secured with melted beeswax. Wonderful addition to needle felt collection. He adds a beautiful pop of color to holiday and winter decor and can be used in mantle, table displays and baskets.
Since every bird is hand crafted, each is unique just like the real ones. The coloring will have slight variations since the wool used is blended and carded by hand, each will be vibrant and each will be unique.

Not intended for children, Please handle this art sculpture with care, it is not meant as a toy and may be a choking hazard for small children.

Many of my smaller felted creations would also make great ornaments, please let me know if you're interested in this option and I will sew an ornament thread to the felted sculpture.
