Pretty much all acrylics although I did just finish these green wings and decided to try out Rustoleum. They didn't turn out half bad. This blue wing I did with acrylics but I'm going to try doing the rest with Rustoleum also.

How are those done?
Looks like you put skins on a frame?
Are they carved.

They are canvas stretched over a wood and wire frame. The heads are handcarved basswood
