Whimsical Wings








Make luminous and lightweight wings for pendants, earrings, mobiles, sculptures and dolls in this experimental workshop. Expand your technical repertoire with these useful techniques: decorative wire working, coloring resin, attaching and painting acetate films and using interference pigments. Students will create a variety of wing shapes, starting with simple leaf-like pieces, advancing to more ornate wrapped pendants and layered pieces with painted embellishments.


I am delighted to present this workshop at Art Fest 2012! I really enjoyed creating the samples and found they were quite addictive to make (in fact, I just finished another batch a few hours ago). They are a variation or advanced version of my project 'Woodland Wings' from my book 'Enchanted Adornments', which may be the most popular project in the book. Try out this fun and addictive project with Andrew and I this spring at Art Fest!

I was wondering what kind of pigments you add to the resin to make it iridescent like that. Is it the pearl ex interference pigments, or the duo pigments? I'm sure you know that someone has quite a lucrative etsy shop selling fairy wing earring and pendants using your technique. I love them and want to make some for myself and my friends. Great ideas you have!!
