This origami peacock has a magnificent blend of five colors, which come together, to make a beautiful and intricate peacock. This project is complex, so experience with 3D Origami makes the process easier. This is because of the number of modules you need to make, a whopping 2,600.

27 papers of one color (A)

18 papers of another color (B)

15 papers of another color (C)

15 papers of another color (D)

7 papers of the last color (E)

480 of color C (Orange)

451 of color D (Yellow)

Step 3: Continuing the Main Body

Continue to make the main body of your peacock. You are going to need your "A" color.

Step 4: Finishing the Main Body
