Although there are many, many extremely talented wing makers out there it is always nice to have a go at making some yourself. An excellent starting point is Rosemilk’s ‘How to’ page (lots and lots of information here), and for those of you who like visual guides, watch the video above (in which Emilie Autumn makes a pair of wings using the nylon method for HGTV’s ‘Crafter’s Coat to Coast’). If you prefer cellophane wings there is a great tutorial on Jennifer Herbert’s Faery Muse site.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to making your own pair of wings. Have a go using the above construction methods, or experiment with different materials and techniques to form the basic wings. You can decorate your wings any way you want, the only limit is your imagination!
