As we neared the end of our project we all continued to make our kites. I had already cut some feathers to use on my kite but after thinking about the design for a while I decided that using watercolor on the paper first to resemble rain was a better idea.
I created a sheet that was watercoloured and then drew feather outlines on the sheet. Next I spent a while cutting out the feathers, folding them down the middle and creating slits down the sides. I would then glue them in rows on top of each other on the kite to create a layered pattern.
