(Like how all the lighting is different?? I'm a great photographer, I know.)So here's how you make a turkey. Start with a base color. I tested out a bunch of different colors on a white piece of paper with a background and the gold I used for the body to see what looked good. You can also test out colors and practice designs on press on nail (also very inexpensive.) Start by doing the feathers. I did orange, burgundy, and red. I started from the base and moved to the narrower part of the feather. I didn't do perfect straight lines but oh well, feathers aren't straight right? I painted the head, neck and body in white first. This allows better opacity over the feathers and background. Also, it makes the gold (if you don't have brown) stand out better. Next, paint over the white with the brown or gold. Then paint the gobbler thing. First I did pink then I did red over the pink because I didn't like it. I put a small white dot then orange for the beak. Then I finished with 2 little legs. Apply a top coat and now you're done!
(P.S. I added another feather after this picture was taken)
