Nala the Peacock

IMG_2052

Name: Nala
Species: Peacock
Ingredients: Made from feathers, a box of hello panda that was donated to me, a piece of cover set from my motorcycle that I found while spring cleaning a few weeks back, and a headlight as the base.

Process:
Honestly it was a bit tough piecing these 4 objects together as I was still indecisive on the main body to hold these for things together. But me being me just decide to do and think about it later.

IMG_2054_croppedUsed glue gun to piece the two fairings together to form the head and neck. Look at that lovely screw hole that forms the eye.

I personally love how Nala fits in with all of her classmate’s animal creation. Look at how she oversees each other with love. Enjoyed the process of making the sculpture, but a little bit disappointed as I could have gotten a better material for the body of the peacock, and planned my time well so I could make another animal to pair up with Nala.
