1.Start by laying Film over thetop of a wing pattern. I’vefound using blue painter’stape works best and removeseasier when finished.2.I cut the main support wiresfor the tops of the wings.Leave enough wire to over-hang the inner edge of thefilm.I use FabriTac glue and run a bead down the length of thewire that will be in contactwith the film
Fantasy Wing Tutorial
I recommend 20 gauge for wings 4-5 inches and 18 gauge for wingslarger than 6 inches. The wire in this tutorial is 18 gauge for support
3.Carefully lay the wire on the pat-tern. Notice the wire is above the pattern and longer than the line of the pattern. These wings will bethe size for a doll 8 to 12 inchestall.As long as I follow the basic shapeof the pattern, it will still be pro- portioned and both sides will be thesame.4.Both top wires are glued andnext comes the center rounds.I use anything I can find that isround to wrap my wire aroundto make the curve. I add glueand with a tweezer, place thecenter on the film. The centersare also made larger than the pattern.
(Center rounds are 20 gauge wire)
5.With both top wires and center rounds in place, it’s time for theribs.
(all rib wires are 20 gauge)
6.I cut ribs for both sides of the wings at the same time.This keeps the wings uni-form. I only cut the pieces Ineed at the time.
