Was so clear and lovely to watch and I had good results at home, not perfect of course, but I could see how to achieve my own whimsical bird.
Very good instruction. I like how you did not timelapse your video. The only thing I would have liked was a list of the colors you used or other options for those of us that do not know how to pick colors so well.
