Hi, I am Vaishali, myself & my partner Nayan, we are paper cut artists based in India. We have been making paper artworks for one year now. We took up the 365 days challenge of creating miniature colorful birds using paper and watercolors for this entire year of 2018. Here we are sharing our works of art from our ongoing series of Miniature Paper Birds.

The concept of these miniatures is to express the intricacy & vibrance of the beautiful birds around us. We used the technique of layered paper cutting to give volume to the unique artworks and get a three-dimensional feel to them.

All the beautiful artworks are entirely hand-cut and hand-painted and are made without using any kind of magnifying tools. Each layer is precisely hand-cut on paper and painted to the exact shade of the bird after which it is assembled to get the final look. Every single colorful painting takes from 4-8 hours to complete depending on the details of feathers & colors. Some of the tiniest paper birds measure only 1.8 CM in height (from head to tail).

For daily updates on our tiny "Paper Birds" visit our Instagram profile. Enjoy our artworks.

SAVE NATURE SAVE EARTH.

Peafowl? Seriously? So a rooster is now just a plain old "fowl"?

Love cedar waxwings! At a glance they look kind of drab, but then you notice the colorful details.
