PEACOCK LANTERN

HELLO OUT THERE IN BLOGGER LAND.....
LONG TIME NO POST!
I finally finished one of my lantern rooms; the black colored one with the wide black stripes on the back walls.
I made it into a peacock reading corner.  

Stem wire makes the quill; eyes are reduced pictures cut out and glued to the end of each wire. Paint the wire with white. Run a thin bead of glue along the edge of black cotton fabric, let dry and cut a strip about 1/2 inch wide. Pull threads to ravel the edge as shown. Glue the strip to the "back" of the wire and up around the edge of the "eye" and back down the other side. Let dry and then trim at a sort of jagged edge; highlight with a gold marker/pen and place in a vase.

  5. Such a relaxing little corner and the decor is stunning. I am curious about the peacock, though. Did you make it because I know that you could. You are that good!

    1. Hey, Lucille,
      Thank you so much for your sweet compliments! Yes, I did make the peacock on the bracket. I used white Sculpey and acrylic paints. Started over many times and kept studying several pictures on the internet. Anything I try to make,I study the picture for a long time; sometimes weeks.
