Well here it is! The second (and most complex so far) pair of felt costume wings!
This was a great experiment, and I'm very pleased to know that watercolors can do this! Since I don't have any actual dying materials, watercolor was the next best thing to use. The only problem is I don't think they'd stand up to water so I probably don't recommend it lol.Materials
Stiff Felt, wire armature.Time
- between 13 and 15 hours. Wingspan
27 inches (basically the 2 foot wingspan + the base which adds the extra 3 inches).
There are 144 feathers and over 160 parts altogether.Quick info for you curious folk
~ Please don't ask me to make a tutorial...I don't have one at this time. Sorry about that.
BUT If you're wondering about how I made them, it's pretty basic (most effort is just putting LOTS of time into the construction)
- Stiffened felt. I buy this from crafts stores or online, pretty much wherever I can find colors I like. It comes it stiff sheets, I don't do it myself. <-- although if you can figure out how to make stiffened felt yourself then you could do some GIANT feathers! That would be awesome. I buy like 20 sheets or so for one pair of wings, at least. I always have extra but I like to be safe.
- Heavy gauge wire, like from a hardware store
- A small flat piece of wood to attach/ wrap the wire onto
- Hot glue
- Needle and thread
- Ribbon (or whatever you want for the straps)
- Some giant paper for a pattern, and some stiff paper to cut out the individual feather patterns to trace onto the felt
Please feel free to try out your own felt wing designs. I own my patterns, not the actual idea of making wings from felt Other WingsCommission Info
