I made my first tutorial basically to show how to make bats I came up with an idea I havent seen before with making the wings but I'm pretty pleased with how they came out. I made another type as well but I think I like these better and they hold up pretty well.
Here are the finished ones
here is the body all glued together before painting (I want to do a way better face paint but I wanted to make this simple and quick for the tutorial)
here are a few hanging under the hoops I have received in craft swaps! ^.~
(sorry for the bad picture on this one!
I managed these really quick because of the simple design and fast paint! I wanted people to be able to make them simple! I'm thinking of hanging some in my tree but they need to be spray painted and sealed instead of what I did on these. The longest part was actually painting all the pieces which sucked because i had to use watered down acrylic paint. I was running low and I didnt plan ahead well enough. I highly recommend that if you are making a bunch to buy some spray paint and paint them a base coat of solid black after gluing together! Bottom line is that I really needed something to focus on to help me de-gloomify my mood and it helped. I will probably do another tutorial this upcoming week as well. Full tutorial on my blog (here
) if interested! I just dont want to go through loading them all one at a time because my little junky netbook I'm on right now is is a grump when i upload/download/watch things over the internet. Hope you enjoy them!!!
