Just wanted to share a few images of our carnival project from last summer.
We made a few items, a giant peacock, which stood about 18 foot high and about 14 foot long. We made willow frame work in pieces for the head, and 3 cage sections for the back. The tail was made from a few pieces of bamboo cane and woven with willow to strengthen. Most of the cagework was covered in very light nylon silk. The head was covered in tissue papers and painted where needed. Then sealed with PVA glue to prevent rain damage. OH and it did RAIN.
