    What is gesso? I have the perfect little bird house that I would like to try to make look as wonderful as yours.

    I bought a little antique bird cage a couple years ago, this year I found a small meal worm feeder and put it in the cage. I hung it out side on my covered porch the birds go in and out of it all day. It's fun to see a wild bird in the cage.
