Pink Robin

By Sally Prangley

The Pink Robin is native to southern Australia. I don’t know, however, if Pink Robins in the outback have all the accoutrements that this one does: a party hat and precious egg! My approach in making birds is to start with a species that I find intriguing and take artistic license from there. The actual shape of a Pink Robin is already rather round, but I couldn’t resist adding to its girth. Recycled Amazon mailers and other packing materials are used along with annealed steel wire to create the armature for this bird. Many layers and colors of paper are added via brush and glue. The oversized egg - perhaps a party favor - is a real egg that’s been blown out and also covered in layers of colorful paper and tied up with a wire bow for easy dangling from the little bird’s beak. Both the egg and party hat are easily removed so the Pink Robin can display its lovely shape and colors without distraction!
