The dance of the peacock - part 5

Morning to all....yup still experiencing problem with my internet line..hopefully this entry will go through...And congratulation to the Malaysian team....but pelik why don't i feel the same excitement sewaktu I menonton aksi- Harimau Malaya dizaman super Mokh..yup we won last nite...but I still have to find my excitement

Ok...lets going back to the peacock..sorrylah if this story tak habis2 lagi...but please bear with me....let's talk about peacock...other than the of the most challenging part is the wings...for the wings...I drew the outline of the pattern and pinned it on the side of a round polystrine...and then piped the pattern....let it dry than only the way...semuanya I gunakan Super saved my made my life very much easier...All in all I piped 6 wings...when actually I only needed 2 for the peacock...As for the side..I wish I could do the runout technique..but time didn't permit me to do it..or else I wouldn't be able to enter the competition..coz it would take at least about 2 weeks to get it perfectly dry in our Malaysian weather...I guess that's also one of the reason why people do not want to do RI work for the wedding takes time and lots of kesabaran yg teramat sangat...

U guys must be thinking why did I do 6 wings when I only needed 2..and what did I do to the balance of the wings...Well I did use 2 of them for my peacock..but the balance didn't survive...4 of them broke sewaktu I nak cuba pasangkan ke badan...maybe some of u kata it was an easy job...well for this creation I always made sure I had plan B...if plan were to fail..then I would go to plan masa hendak pasangkan the wings according to my plan A all 4 broke...yup all 4 and balance 2 and if these 2 last pieces broke..that would mean..i would be sending a cacat peacock..peacock without wings..Actually I was so bercita2 plan A was to pasangkan sayap2nya terapung attachment to any base..but sebab no run out..the wings were my munchkin suggested that..why didn't I attach the wing to the base completely..which made sense since I only left with two final it was either I had to lupakan my cita2 yg tinggi melangit have floating 3D wings..and attach the whole thing to the base OR go to the competition with a cacat peacock..Well..I had no choice...I wouldn't want to go to the competition with a cacat finally the wings were completely attached to the base...that was my plan B...

Well hv to go now...lots of new projects waiting and I will update this blog as soon as possible...with lots of excitement ...I promise... ;)
