I made these origami birds out of watercolour paper. I wet the paper before I started folding. I used clothes pins to secure them into the shape, and allowed to dry. I punched hole in either side of fold on wings to hang with. I then painted them with their first wash. Allowed to dry again. I punched holes along edges of wing and tales for decoration. Then painted eye, beak, and tips of wings. I used glue and clothes pins to secure in appropriate places.
