I want to introduce you to the process of creating an exclusive panel-suspension with a peacock. Peacock author Technics, love to mix different, seemingly incompatible materials and technology. Such birds I have thought a few years ago, since then do not buy the stores, as using their imagination or by looking on the Internet photos of real birds, you can create any kind of brand, size and color. Suspension with a peacock can decorate your home or to become a beautiful original gift to friends.
To create a suspension, we will need the following materials:
– Ring base (I used the hoop);
– Paper towels;
– Paper basics for any bird;
– PVA glue;
– Pen and paper;
– Yellow and blue (blue) thick thread;
– Glue “Titan” and a small soft empty jar with a narrow neck;
– Acrylic paints;
– Molar Scotch;
– Crystals of blue or white (for a crest);
– Thin wire for tuft and tightly to the legs;
– A little beads;
– A device for burning or awl (needle, nail) and a candle;
– Acrylic varnish;
– Artificial branch with small leaves and rosettes;
– Watercolor paper;
– Two black beads to the peephole and three elongated beads or crystals to crest;
– A small piece of thick wire for thin tuft;
The materials are ready, begin to work:
Step 1: Make a peacock basis:
Wrinkled piece of paper in the form of the bird’s body, it is possible for the primary fixation wrap his thin thread, as well to facilitate the giving of the body of rotation can be further used wire, inserting it inside. Bird must comply with the selected basis, that is not too small or on the contrary a great respect to the ring.
Next, insert the wire for legs, punctures through the paper on:
Then add the paper where you need it, you can glue thermo-gun. When the body is formed, are pasted over the top with a paper tape molar Please note, not all adhesive tape holding up well, it is necessary to buy the one that best sticks, if all the same in any field he came unstuck, stick it back to the thermo-pistol calf. Form Paper Con thighs to the trunk, and on top, wrap with paper tape:
Next, paste over the head and neck of poultry pieces of paper towel (it is necessary to tear rather than cut) soaked in a solution of PVA glue with water in equal proportions. Give work to dry completely.
Step 2: Make a ring-base:
For the base, I took the ring from the hoop for embroidery, you can use any other basis, such as a wire or woven twigs, or even just a wooden frame and are not necessarily circular. Twine entwine basis, fixing thermo-adhesive or glue Titan. Before reaching the end of the glue a loop, then top with string Wallpapers.
Step 3: Make the tail feathers and wings:
Tips and tricks when working with filigree twine: Adhesive Titanium necessarily emptied from the jar in a soft plastic container with a narrow spout, correct twine and thread in the process should be a metal needle or a wooden skewer. If adhesive gets on your hands, immediately wipe it with a damp cloth.
Draw or print out a feather scheme given below, insert a picture in fi and spread string thread and feathers, as shown in the photo below.
We make a nine or ten such pёryshek:
Then proceed to the wings. Under the scheme gradually spread its wings, do not forget that there are right and left, that is, do the wings of the mirror. Without waiting for the complete drying of each flap we place on the palm and thumb is pressed, attach the wing deep cavity, so that would then match the rounded side of the peacock.
In the middle of a drip glue and pour the beads:
Try on a curved wing to the bird:
Step 4: Remove the glue plyonochku:
Devices for a burning out on a tree gently Burn all plyonochku on the wings and tail feathers remaining on the adhesive, or use an awl heated on fire (the nail). You can simply cut the nail scissors, but it is difficult, especially during burning further strengthened thread.
Step 5: Make the feathers of the peacock body:
For making use of feathers watercolor paper. Cut it into strips of half a centimeter wide, draw a semi-circular parts, as in the photo below, and cut out:
Then the incision edges on the narrow strip-simulated feathers:
Tighten notched edge blade scissors:
The exact number of feathers is hard to say, because it depends on the size you made birdies billet.
Step 6: Wallpapers body feathers of birds:
At about body peacock pen scheduled to be located where the wings, the feathers area we will not hang. Feathers begin to stick by the tail, use PVA glue, sticking to intercede on each other.
On the head feathers are not sticking, stop, as shown in the picture with fine feathers:
Now Wallpapers wire left for the legs, a narrow strip of paper towel dipped in glue PVA:
Birdy overturn, Wallpapers thighs, tummy, breast and neck, just before reaching the head.
Now you need to hide the transition between the head and the feathers of birds, for it is torn off and glue small pieces of paper towel using PVA glue.
We leave work completely dry, it is better to do in the evening and leave for the night, to begin staining the next day.
Step 7: Make eyes:
On the sides make cuts and glue in large black beads on top of the edges to seal small pieces of paper towel soaked in glue PVA.We are waiting for drying.
Step 8: stained body of birds:
Stained bird’s body in a bright blue color, leaving the colored area around the eyes and wings, waiting for the complete drying.
Further along the edges of feathers is painted in pale blue, waiting for drying.
Around the eyes draw a fine brush white stripes:
Then draw a black strip lashes, paint the beak, legs, put a white glare on the little eyes:
Feather the edges set off by silver paint, just tinted neck.
Step 9: Glue the wings, do the crest:
On each side of the thermo-glue gun wings, glue the symmetrically:
Behind under the feathers with sharp scissors make a cut for the tail, but it is not sticking.
Cut the three small pieces of wire on the ends that stick teardrop beads or rhinestones. On the back of the head Peacock head do next three holes, which are pasted into the wire with beads, as shown in the photo. Then stained in blue speaking glue and wire.
For an example showing the crest of another peacock:
Step 10 Glue the twig and the peacock to the ring:
You can use just a twig with leaves or paste leaves then, in my version. Glue twig, gluing place wrapped twine by fixing the thermo-adhesive:
Bird screwed fixing glue:
Step 11: Decorate a ring and a sprig of:
Sticking to the ring and ready twig leaves and flowers or make them yourself.
Step 12: Glue the tail and varnish:
Sticking thermal gun feathers one by gluing a Mezhuyev:
Paws complement decor elements:
All work, except for the ring, including feathers, cover with acrylic lacquer, can be in several layers to complete drying of each layer.
The work is ready, of course I need a lot of work, but I think the result will please you!
