I carved and underglazed the green portions of the hummingbird at leather hard. Then after bisque firing I came back and added tiny details on the wings and chest with iron oxide. I then covered that with a thin coat of two colors of glaze to get the gray/brown hummingbird plumage. It came out just as I'd hoped. For once.
