Research/ Inspiration



  • To make tiny wings, emboss a small design on thin foil, repeating  the shape again to make symmetrical wings. Spread a thin coating of petroleum jelly on foil, then pour a glob of glue on top, letting the glue settle in a thin layer. Then dribble tiny drops of various colors into the glue (nail polish, paint, glitter, no-hole beads, make up powder). Try to make the wings similar. Then allow to it dry. More than one coat of glue may be needed. After it has dried clear and colorful, peel the glue off the foil. Put half of the design on a sheet of wax paper, another layer of wax paper over it, and then the other half of the dried glue flipped over. Trim the wings to match each other, This process can be used for larger sizes as well, but would need to be reinforced by gluing on thin wire in curly patterns. The tiny ones don't need wire reinforcement but some wire is needed to poke into holes in the fairy's back.
  • Find small enough leaves, and skeleton-ize them. Then pour glue on top.
  • Paint lace, (which stiffens it) and cut out fairy wings.  The holes on the lace can be filled with a clear medium such as polish tinted glue. For larger scale, larger lace would work, and they could be reinforced with wire.
