Russian Peacock (3D Origami) by Denierim Russian Peacock (3D Origami) by Denierim
Started: April 20, 2012
Finished: April 22, 2012
Pieces: 1299
Time spent: about 20 hours + several hours for the glue to dry...

I did not design this origami, nor can I take all the credit for it. I got the instructions from this website: [link] I did a few changes to the original design, mainly on the neck. I wasn't that fond of the thick neck so I made it thinner.

This is the second most frustrating 3D origami creation I've made. It took forever, and thanks to the fact I don't have a hot glue gun, it took forever to actually glue the tail together with the body. And yes, the use of glue is actually required with this model. I was overall worried from the start that this wouldn't come together. The dark green paper I used as the base is really really REALLY thin, half thinner than the rest of the papers, and I was sure the whole model would collapse as soon as I got it together.

I'm still waiting for the glue to fully dry before I can finish this piece. It still needs a "nest" or a pedestal for it to stand. As seen in the picture, the body is higher than the lowest parts of the tail. But I'll get to that later. Right now I just wanted a picture in case the whole thing fell apart after all. The tail is extremely fragile because of the thin paper...

3D origami is basically folding small pieces of paper into triangles that fit together to form this rather strong structure. If you're interested, I suggest you find some beginners tutorials on Youtube. Trust me, there's a lot of them!

ok thanks ,will do. I just started yesterday but since I am sticking all the pieces with glue I guess it will take a lil more time plus my full time job will add some pressure . however the love of doing the thing will come through, soon

How did you connect the body to the tail piece? Glue or does it actually connect?
Reply
:icondenierim:
Denierim Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Unfortunately it doesn't connect without some kind of a medium there. I used regular glue to attach the tail to the actual body. The neck is glued on the body also.

Thank you and sorry, it seems I've completely ignored your question for over a year... But I had to fold 1299 pieces for this, which makes... roughly 41 sheets of regular copy paper.

Even though you didn't design it, that still took a hell of a lot of dedication and like you said, I bet it was really frustrating but the finished product is really awesome. I'm always impressed with people that have more patience than I. :) Great job with this!
