These Artists Are Making Miniature Paper Birds Every Day For A Year

It’s amazing to see the wonderful things that you can create with just a piece of paper. While most artists stick to using paper as a canvas, some choose to use it as a medium by itself. So, we’ve seen various talented artists turn ordinary sheets of paper into stunning sculptures and even miniature plants. This time, prepare to revel in the beauty of this creative duo’s miniature paper birds that look so realistic.

Hailing from India, Nayan and Vaishali take delight in crafting small-scale birds. Their creations are based on common feathered creatures like doves, owl and parrots to exotic ones like toucans. And, each piece features multiple layers of painted paper, which are used to form a replica of the feathery animal.

 

Talented artists Nayan and Vaishali create realistic miniature birds out of hand-cut paper. So, lets take a look at some of their amazing creations. Firstly, we have this white release dove and these birds are often seen during milestones of our lives.
