Condition your gold clay and roll it in a ball
Roll it out to about 4mm thick
Using a large cookie cutter or in my case a hairspray cap cut out a large circle, it should be about 2cm in diameter
Using a smaller cap or cutter, about 1.5cm in diameter, and cut a smaller circle to create a ring.
Flatten the ring slightly.
Using some of the leftover gold clay make a smaller ball.
Make the body of the mocking jay
Make the beak pointy
Using a clay tool, make an indent to separate the head and body
Roll out some 2mm thin clay
Place the body on the clay as a guide and carefully cut out the tail
Using the x acto knife blend the body and the tail together
Use your finger to blend
Using a clay tool make markings on the head
Make markings for feathers on the body and use a knife to make indents in the tail
Place it in the ring
Make a beak and eyes with the knife
Roll out some clay
Place it on the ring with the bird
This creates the base of the arrow
Create a point for the arrow
Cut out a wing shape
Using the clay tool make indents in the wing
And layer feathers using the clay tool
Place the arrows point and some ends on the arrow, add the wing
Repeat the same for the second wing and place it on the bird, using a toothbrush add some texture
Get your soft pastels
Using red brown and black colour the pin to create a rusty, slightly aged effect
Turn the pin over
Smooth out the back so it won't fall apart and reinforce it with some bake and bond or tls
Now cook by the instructions on your clay package and superglue a brooch backing on the back, the pin on the right is glazed and complete, it looks better.
