Paper Pop-Up Peacock

Hello, my name is Peter Dahmen. I'm a graphic designer from germany. The peacock is one of the most complex pop-up sculptures that I ever designed. Many thanks to Isabella for her support as a hand model in this video! If you want to see more of my artwork, please visit my website: . I ask for your understanding, that I don't have tutorials for my artworks. Most of my pop up sculptures are designed to be single, unique pieces. But If you are generally interested in tutorials for pop up cards, I invite you to visit my facebook fanpage. Here I published a list with many tutorials and some book recommendations:

Hi Peter, wouldn't the weight of the peacock's wing collapse because its
too heavy than the bottom part of the body, and how do you use the bottom
of the body support the wing? What kind of paper do you use, and also how
thick is it?

Dear Hà Nguyễn, I created this pop up card as a single, unique piece. To
create this pop up card I needed more than 3 weeks with lots of trials and
errors. I made more than 7 models before I was ready to create this paper
sculpture. Please understand, that I don't want to share my plans. I
encourage you to create your own pop up cards. If you are generally
interested in tutorials, please click on the link in the description below
the video. I wish you every success and much fun! Best, Peter

Dear Rahul Roy, this is a misunderstanding. I created this peacock pop up
as a single, unique piece. Therefore, I don't give my plans away. Please

have ever created. All available plans can be found in the link in the
video description, but I ask for your understanding, that I don't want to
share the plans for the peacock. Best regards, Peter

@itspaulgustavson That's funny. Thank you for this comment. It was not my
intention to make a witty title. Is it my fault, that the names of the
bird, the material and the genre all start with the same letter? If I named
the video "card made of thin cardboard, showing a blue bird fanning out its
tail in a three dimensional effect", wouldn THAT be be a foolish title?
Sometimes it's clumsy to *avoid* alliterations :-) Best, Peter

Dear AzoresMonica, yes, in general I sell my artworks. The peacock is a
single piece, that create on demand. Unlike a card from a serial
production, I need many hours for the cutting and the assembling. I ask for
your understanding, that the price is accordingly high. But if you are
interested, please send me an email: info(at)
