    Re: The "Before and After" Thread.

    Thanks Brooke... I make all my rocks for my birds the same way. Blue dock foam carved to the shape i want then i cover them in paper mache and airbrush and mist with water until i like the look of them. Once done i hit them with a matte clear coat to seal it. Try it and you will be shocked how easy it is!

    She was my first Sea Duck. Quite the learning experience!

    Matt I love it because it's simple self explained and it's what I do,, though most of the time it's frozen pizza boxes.
