The blue colored and green colored paper is used for the making of the peacock's body and peacock's tail.

Lets start ....

Step 10: Making of PEACOCK'S TAIL

The peacock's tail is known as the TRAIN.....

For the making of PEACOCK'S TAIL , we need a Green colored paper.

So fold the paper in length wise as shown in picture.The size is approximately same as the clock base.

Cut each strips of paper using scissors..

a large number of strips are ready..

We want to make TEAR DROP shape as peacock's tail.

For this take one strip. Hold the strip on the acrylic paint bottle.

Apply fevicol at that end and fold and apply fevicol to the other end.

this round shaped strip can be obtained.

Press anywhere to get a tear drop shape..

The all procedures are well explained in the images...

Step 11: Making of PEACOCK'S BODY

I want to make a peacock's body......

For that I draw a peacock's body on the white paper using pencil and cut it to get a sharp shape of the body.

Then I take a blue colored paper and fold it. Place the peacock's body shaped white paper on it and mark it on the blue colored paper.cut the shape using scissors..Apply the GREEN color to the beak of the peacock.

NEXT....

CREST is the crown on the top of the head of the peacock.

Draw 3 shapes on the blue colored paper as shown on the picture.

Cut that 3 shapes using scissors.

Take the fevicol cap and place it on the blue colored paper and draw to get a circle shape.cut it.
