Turtle

Challenge: 

Kite Craftsmanship

Completely hand painted with markers, carved bamboo poles to achieve perfect balance in weight and rigidity necessary for flight, tensioners are made of polyester monofilament, the tails are napkin paper with matching colors, the Turtle was designed and manufactured as a special gift for a friend who loves diving. The greatest influence on the design and manufacture of miniature kites comes from Mr. Sunny Lynn from Korea, who is my example in perfection and detail in mini kites, from whom I have always received support and advice to improve the technique. I have more photos detailing the elaboration process, if you want to see them, I will gladly share them
