Project: Paper peacock

This origami figurine was one of my favourites because you could use three different types of paper and you could get a stunning effect with little effort. The tail of the peacock was actually made using the same technique we all use when we get bored and we play with a napkin 🙂

I wanted to create an oversized figurine, the biggest I could make using paper I could find in architecture shops.  The body and crown were made from white patterned paper and the tail was actually sold as a wrapping paper. As you can see, there is a big difference between the actual body and the tail and that’s because I didn’t have the heart to cut such a nice and beautiful news print wrapping paper.
