Hi, my name is Vaishali. Together with my partner Nayan, we are paper cut artists based in India. This is our second post on Bored Panda from the paper art series we have been working on this year. You can find our previous post here!

A little introduction to the art project. We have started 365 days challenge of creating miniature birds using paper and watercolor painting. And we did it every day for the entire year!

Each work of art begins with a sketch on paper. After that different layers are traced from the sketch on 200 GSM watercolor paper. Then each layer is precisely hand-cut and then they are ready for coloring. Each tiny layer is hand-painted with watercolors with utmost precision. Finally, all the layers are assembled together to get a 3-dimensional look for our tiny colorful birds.

Every single artwork takes about 4-8 hours to complete depending on the details of the beautiful birds such as feathers and colors. Some of the tiniest paper birds measure only 1.8 CM in height (from head to tail).

Through our unique art, we want to share the beauty and significance of these rare birds. We hope that people will understand the importance of all bird species and will help to save them.

“Climate is changing we should also change now.”

Enjoy our artworks!

I guess the black swans in India have black eyes as opposed to red?
