Wings, wings, wings

What you need to make wings "my way" is pretty simple:

piece of cellophane - heavy, like is used to wrap gift baskets

20 gauge wire

Fabric paint - Tulip X-treme Paint- Asphalt

Cut two pieces of wire 2 1/2 to 3" long. Bend the wire at a 90 degree angle making one side slightly longer than the other. The reason for one side to be longer is so that you have a section to insert into the dragons back when attaching. Take the fabric paint and cover the wire, like in the second photo. Free hand the rest of the wing. The trick I use is pretty simple...start at the center of the bend. Draw a line straight down. On either side of of the center line draw another line. Hint- like a spider web. Then fill in as you want. Set them aside to dry. Drying time varies.
