Golden Phoenix Side by Richi89 Golden Phoenix Side by Richi89
~Golden Phoenix~

I can finally tick this off the to do list:D

Made from gold card and hot glue with a little wire for support (body and wings) + bamboo for base.

It's soaring wings span approximately 30cm

What's funny is that I really suck at drawing wings yet I'm pretty happy how these ones turned out:)

Didn't really feel like adding lights this time round hehe

Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Wow, this would also look awesome if it could be hung from fishing line or something from the ceiling. But this is just amazing as it is also great work :)

Awesomely awesome!!!One question ^^ :How do you do that turns with paper?In its tail for example.
Reply
:iconrichi89:
Richi89 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011
Thanks! It's quite simple actually, just cut out a piece of paper making it swirl and curve around. After that just lightly run a sharp knife down the center of the piece, following every curve. Make sure you don;t cut through the paper but just score it. Once you've done that, fold the paper along the bend and there you go! Let me know how it goes yeh:)
