This adorable swan is ready to swim .I like this very much.It is one of my favourite things in which i made.

I have made it using 3D triangles .Its procedure is posted in my previous post. Nearly 500 triangles are required to finish this swan.First we should know how to make these following things 
1.       body
2.       wings-2
3.       Tail
4.       Head
5.       Base for swan to stand.
Chat paper
Required Triangles:
 Stage 1-30 triangles
Stage 2-30 triangles
Stage 3-30 triangles
Stage 4-30 triangles
Stage 5-30 triangles
Stage 6-30 triangles
Wing 1
        Stage 1-12 triangles
        Stage 2-11 triangles
        Stage 3-10 triangles
        Stage 4-9 triangles
        Stage 5-8 triangles
        Stage 6-7 triangles
        Stage 7-6 triangles
        Stage 8-5 triangles
        Stage9-4 triangles
        Stage10-3 triangles
        Stage11-2 triangles
        Stage12-1 triangle
wing 2
as the Same for wing1
        Stage 1-3 triangles
        Stage2-4 triangles
        Stage3-3 triangles
        Stage4-2 triangles
        Stage5- 1triangle
Neck and Head:
30 triangles
       BASE 1-40 triangles
       BASE 2 – 55 triangles

Stage 1 and Stage 2:

A triangle has 2 parts.One is leg or tail and the other one is pocket.It has 2 tails and two  pockets.first we take 2 triangles.then take one more triangle and insert its pockets  into the two legs of these 2 triangles.Here we must insert into the  closesest legs in both of them.See next u can clear........

do the same for all  60 triangles.Now we can see two layer here.

Stage 3
similarly add 30 triangles turn it upside down.....

Stage 4
next add 30 triangles here .

Stage 5
similarly add 30 triangles here

Stage 6
do the same procedure here also.

Now body part is wings................

Stage 1
here we add 12 triangles in the same manner.
Stage 2
add 11 triangles
Stage 3
 add 10 triangles
Stage 4
add 9 triangles
Stage 5
add 8 triangles
Stage 6
add 7 triangles
Stage 7
add 6 triangles
Stage 8
add 5 triangles
add 4 triangles
add 3 triangles
add 2 triangles
add 1 triangle
then its wing part will be.....................

do the same in its opposite side also.then we get two wings of our swan.....

 now wing part is tail...........
Stage 1
add 3 triangles between the two wings.
then add 4 triangles
next add 3 triangles
add 2 triangles
next add 1 triangle
then its tail part will be.....................

 Now tail is over.Next neck...........
Neck and Head:
take 30 triangles and insert them one by one as in the fig......this gives a neck part.

remove 2 triangles in the  opposite side of  thetail.then attach this it will be................

BASE 1-40 triangles

BASE 2 – 55 triangles

then place both of them like this............

now place our swan on the stand.......

something missing here is the eye part.using red and black marker i draw eye in a white chart and stick it.
now the swan is swim

Festival Girl said...

Beautiful work! In Australia, I have seen people use Lottery paper slips or Bank slips to make these swans; effective, cheap and I'm sure more cost effective to practice with.

Cheers, Festival Girl
