My OOAK Fairy wings were so fun to create!
Each step took many hours.
The materials are paper, paint and wire.
The image is a copy of my hand etched tile. First I burnt the design with a wood burning tool, and lightly sanded.
Second, I mixed paint with tacky glue and painted the wings for strength.
Third step I glued wire to the out side edge of wings.... forth step used wooden dow for center and wrapped with wire glued in place for attaching to a soft bodied baby pictured here.
Not shown... fifth step I coated with shimmery Mod podge... still drying. Next challenge is to create a fairy dress for the baby shown. And finally creating her display bed. More good things to come ! Thanks for viewing!

This is an exciting new technique...
I purchased a wood burning tool some years ago.
Well finally got to use it. I wanted a unique way to create wings for a series of fairies. This pair will only be used for reference.
My techniques will develop as I use the tool. I used a rounded tip to create this design... wait until I try the other cutting tips ! Will post pictures of other designs soon. I will be experimenting and having a blast, just getting use to the tool !
