Katie’s Moulin Rouge bird box has been complicated to make due to compound angles for both the roof and the sides (but especially for the roof). Luckily Katie proved to be a bit of a maths whizz in calculating the sizes of the triangles and the proportions of the bird box are extremely striking and sure to make a great artwork.
The inspiration for my bird box is from the film, Moulin Rouge. I am recreating the windmill. With sails, the body and design.
The windmill, will be the colour of a very deep red, with black details for the windows. The roof will be a very dirty colour of grey.
The reason that I chose to do the Moulin Rouge windmill is because I am a huge fan of the movie and I thought that the shape and design of the body would be a perfect size for the birds to inhabit. It has a very tall and sturdy structure to it.
