How to Make Fairy Wings
For Your Dolls, Bears and OOAK Sculptures
Want to turn your Dolls, Bears or Polymer Clay OOAK Dolls into fairies? Learn how to make fairy wings from the amazing iridescent product; Fantasy Film, (also known as Angelina Film).
For this "How to make fairy wings" tutorial you will need the following products:
Most of these products can be found in hobby shops or ebay. However I recommend getting what you can from
The OOAK Artist Emporium.
Her prices are good, and she is also a very helpful lady.
Next, draw out a wing design within the two guide lines. Be sure to use a permanent black marker (pen). Everywhere the black lines are is where you are going to have the wire in the wings.
Lay down a strip of Fantasy Film over your wing template and secure with masking tape to the table. You need everything to stay still for this step.
Once you have all the wires ready, carefully run a bead of fabric glue along the wire and place it on the fantasy film. Be sure not to use excessive amounts or it will look messy.
When the glue has dried you can trim the excess fantasy film. In this example, I have cut right between the top and lower parts of the wing. This will allow me to slightly overlap the the two halves, making the finished OOAK Wing look more realistic.
