How to Make an Origami Peacock – DIY .
Crafts from the modules take a very long time, it’s a fact, but after a full-fledged workmanship you can be proud of yourself. What is the module and how to do it you can read here .
We recently made a swan from the modules , and today I’ll tell you how to make an origami peacock from the modules with your own hands. Naturally, we need insanely many modules, namely: 856 modules of pale yellow color, 114 ordinary whites, 465 greenish colors, 1 of black paper and 1 of red paper.
After preparing all the headings, we can begin to make an origami peacock from the modules.
1. Take the yellow color for the beginning, we need 93 pieces. It is necessary to lay them in three rows, 31 pieces per row, with necessarily long ends outwards. We put the modules in each other and then close them in a ring, it’s not difficult.
2. Next, do the next row. The modules must be laid out in this order:
1 green, 1 yellow, 1 white, 5 yellow, 1 white, 1 yellow, 1 green
3. Now we need to turn over what we did and continue to put on the modules, we need to make the shape round. In total there should be 12 modular rows, i.e. add another 8 and in each row you need to cut the yellow modules that are located between the green ones. White modules will go like an arrow. In the picture everything is visible.
4. Next on the queue will be breast, spread it.
1 row of peacock’s breast: 1 green, 3 yellow, 2 green, 3 yellow, 1 green
Remember! Each rad should be reduced by 1 module.
2 rows of peacock’s breast: 1 green, 3 yellow, 1 green, 3 yellow, 1 green
3 rows – 1 green, 6 yellow, 1 green
4 rows – 1 green, 5 yellow, 1 green
5 rows – 1 green, 4 yellow, 1 green
6 rows – 1 green, 3 yellow, 1 green
7 rows – 1 green, 2 yellow, 1 green
8 row – 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 green
5. Now make the neck, make it very, very simple, the main thing is attentiveness.
The neck consists of 17 rows of color modules. It is necessary to alternate all the ranks from the first to the sixteenth. In the neck there will always be two conventional white modules, and in the arrangement for one module – green, white, green. Directly in the 17th row there will be two white modules.
6. Now the head, we make it the short side of the module forward.
1 head row – 1 green, 1 white, 1 green
2 rows – 2 white
3 rows – 1 green, 1 white, 1 green
4 rows – 2 green
5 rows – 1 green
But the beak is easier to make light, to the very top, when there are two green modules left, we put on one black one, and then put on it red.
7. The time has come for us to make a wing, we make it from the breast itself.
1 wing row – 1 green, 4 yellow, 1 green
In each successive series, one module will be used less.
2 rows – 1 green, 3 yellow, 1 green
3 rows – 1 green, 2 yellow, 1 green
4 rows – 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 green
5 row – 2 green
6 rows – 1 green
The second wing must be identical.
8. Make a stand for our origami peacock from the modules. There will be 8 rows in it.
From 1 to 4 rows – 27 yellow modules in each row.
5 row – (1 green, 2 yellow) x9
6 row – (1 green, 1 yellow, 1 green) x9
7 row – there is a division into 9 angular fragments: (2 green) x9 between the corner fragments leave 2 corners free.
8 row – (1 green) x9
9. The most difficult thing is to make a tail, step by step through the pictures, try to repeat after me.
1 row – 9 white DV (long side forward)
2nd row – 8 white DV
3 row – 9 green DV
4th row – 8 green KV (short side ahead)
10. At the end we make feathers. I’ll show you an example of one pen, and the next you just can change (alternate) the colors of the rim and inner part of the pen.
11. Now we simply attach the previously made parts of the peacock from the modules with our own hands. We attach the stand to the body of a peacock, a gorgeous tail just needs to be put on the rear modules of the trunk, the feathers must be attached to the tail, between the corners we do it. Further the neck and especially the head, we maximally bend forward, even you can drip a little glue between the modules, so that the neck does not break.
This is how we get the origami peacock out of the modules with our own hands!
