Egg Bird

Wed, 29 Jan 2020


Egg Bird. Make your own crank-powered junk automata with a plastic party egg on a cork base.

I’ll be adding a downloadable instruction sheet shortly but meanwhile, hopefully the Instagram video below will get you started!

Cutting list:

Plastic egg – I used coloured plastic fillable eggs that I found on eBay
Paper clips – x3
Cork. for the base
Coloured EVA foam – 1mm
Small piece of card rolled into a tight tube for the crank axle.
