I received a 3d scanner yesterday, so I had to try it on something.

I lightly painted the glass on a drinking bird, then turned the bird upside down on the scanner platform.  Using the "dark" setting, I obtained a decent scan of the bird. 

Print the bird, the base and the hat.  Glue the bird to the base and glue the hat onto the bird.  Glue a couple of google eyes on and you will have a replica.

Design and print files can be found at:
