In another episode of ‘scientists do craft to distract themselves from their terrifying professional lives’, I present to you my fimo flamingo friend, kindly made by fellow Phd-er, Mercedes.
Let’s just stop for a moment to contemplate how darn talented that girl is!
After Mercedes paraded into work draped in beautiful and colourful broaches with parrots and peacocks made from fimo modelling clay, I asked if I might kindly join her ‘power bird’ gang. (You know, because ‘peacocking‘ is a thing)
Obviously, I opted for the most funky bird of them all, the flamingo. (Although, you guys, don’t forget that penguins are also seriously cool. And peregrine falcons – Andy’s favourite animal- are super fast! And her peacock is really, really good. As is the parrot (perrot?). So clearly, pretty much all birds that begin with Pe are the bomb.)
What do you think? You totally want to be in our bird gang now, amiright?
