I wish I could share the directions on how to make these lovely fairy wings, but I'm worried that would violate some kind of copyright law. You can find the tutorial the book Enchanted Adornments by Cynthia Thornton. I have a picture of her fairy wings here in this post.My first attempt was the silver wing on the left but the shape didn't come out quite right. Next one I did was with copper wire and for the last one I used annealed steel wire that was hammered...you know ... just to see what it would look like.
This copper wing is my favorite of the night. I used a cream tissue paper instead of white. One adjustment I did have to make-the directions say to use resin, I don't have that in my studio but I did have Diamond Glaze (Glossy Accents or 3D Lacquer would probably yield the same results).
