Stained Glass Cockatoos Birds sun catcher

Love these stained glass Cockatoos.
size 6" x 7" available in my 
This is a one off  Unique piece. To be honest it was very fiddly to make.
Copper foiling and cutting the tiny pieces caused my hands to get cramps, as the pieces are so small so I will only be making one this size.
The photo above does not show the true colour's so going to add a photo below of copper foiled piece's before it was soldered & hung up this shows the true colouring .

Photo of copper foiled glass sections before soldering.
Posted this photo so you can see the lilac and orange colours.
The idea for this piece was from another stained glass Crafter
who had made a long row of  birds in different colours.
More your common garden birds.
I liked the idea of making a row of  bright coloured parrots then added the Mohawk's
  then they turned into Punk Cockatoos .
