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.
