That finally made the swan.
Begin braiding, connect the tube so you can glue them together
further entwine the two tubes “rope” by 8 pc
share on 4 rolls
a couple of series share and entwine with 2 tubes
6-8 close entwine each tube
if the size is large enough finish weaving, small stands all rise up, setting the stage one after the other
further weave basket narrowing to the top
We completing simple: we start each small stands each other out
coat with PVA glue, when dried prune superfluous
the body is ready, proceed to the breast. Glue tube, pre-scheduled on a basket oval. Immediately I say, that the top two rolls just do not have to stick, they will interfere.
Now this design turned out, small stands can be assembled into a bundle, so as not to interfere
We begin to weave a single tubule breast, bottom-up
We are moving up, capturing neighboring small stands
forming breast: on average 5 small stands weave (back and forth) a couple of rows, then continue to weave like woven in the beginning, that is, all the tubes
Now glue 4 tubes and continue to weave in a circular
begin to narrow, not weave through each small stands, and connecting the small stands at 2, the ducts will be too much extra hide inside our carcasses
is such turns neck crooked, but nothing we modify hands, she degradability
Here’s what our bird side
Further straighten small stands, in the form of the sun is low, the rest are hidden inside another tube glue and begin to weave a “rope” 2 tubes extending first, and then narrowing, to get a head
the remaining tubes wrapped with one, forming a beak, cut off the excess
do “posture”, this tie head to the body, can be a thread, but you can wire, then thoroughly coat with the neck and head with white glue when the glue dries, the neck and remains in that position, then varnish further consolidate this design. Threads remove.
making wings for this prepare to build just such a “fish,” and then a tube is braided all the small stands central and marginalia
for tail pasted three tubes and weave, as well as wings.
Oh, sorry, no pictures, I explain the words, wings to the body “without further ado” simply sewn thread, can be secured with wire, tail raised and also at the bottom of a pair of stitches sewn to the body so that it stuck up.
When cemented wings neatly tied thread tips of the wings to tail, it can be seen in the photographs. And finally all the birds covered with 2 layers of varnish, I was zapashisty, quick-drying.
