WYCINANKA: "RADICAL ROOSTERS"


I had more fun creating these roosters.  I wanted to make them sharp and wild-looking.  I folded the red paper and drew half of the design with pencil on the back.  I cut out all the spaces around the roosters and chicks as well as the tree and branches.  As I opened the cutting, I decided what colors would emphasize the feathers and flowers and cut them out (two pieces at a time).  I glued everything down with white paper glue that dries clear.  This papercut now resides in Shanghai, China.
