There are three types of relief low, meduium, and high relief. for my project i chose to do a medium relief using clay. i chose to use clay because its easy to add texture too and i needed a lot of texture to correctly portray the feathers. To finish my piece i painted it and used a process where i watered down dark paint to add diminsion to the colors of the bird. My favorite part of this piece is the dimision in the wings and if i could change anything about this piece i would go back and give the bird legs which somehow i forgot to do.
