13  Fairy wings and tutorial in Completed Projects by blue bunny on: January 21, 2005 07:21:38 AM
Here are some wings that i made:

And here's how  Smiley

Ingredients  Wink

4 Wire coat hangers
3 or more pairs of tights
Electrical tape and/or gaffa tape/duct tape
Wire cutters
Spray paints (i used car spray)

Ok, get ur 4 metal clothes hangers . Mine were metal, covered with a white plastic coating.
U then need to pull the bottom of them all (fig 2) downwards, away from the hook part.
This will give you a diamond shape.


(please excuse the piss-poor drawing of a hanger! Grin)

Once you have the diamond, have a play around with the other shapes that you can make. Once you decide upon 2 shapes (one for the bottom 2 wings, one for the top 2 wings) try to get the shapes to match up on the opposite sides so when the wings are assembled, you have 2 wings at the top that look alike, but mirrorred, and the same with the bottom 2.

Ok, um....grab some old tights or stockings. Any colour, texture etc. Mine started off as skin coloured plain 15 denier ones. You then basically just cut these into sections of all different widths that are like tubes, and slide them onto the frames. I secured them by snipping little flaps in the tights, and by tying them into the frame, and onto other layers of tights. make holes with scissors, and tie layers onto layers. This will secure each layer to another, and to the frame (hope this is making sense! Huh)
(If you want to, you can also use strips of the tights in different sizes, stretch them round and tie them on.)
I then made ladders in the material, and burnt holes into them with a lighter (please be careful cause if the material falls on you after it's burnt, it hurts cause it's kinda melted plastic'ish!)

This is kinda a bit of luck and a bit of a bodge-job!
Get some wire-cutters. Snip off the hooks, (See PICTURE 1, fig 1) leaving a neck of about 3-4cms, then lay your 4 wings on the floor or a large surface, so they look like they will do when they're assembled.
Overlap the 4 wire 'necks' that had the hooks on, and thn it's a matter of using your electrical tape/gaffa ect to bind all the parts together. Make sure there are no sharp parts poking out, cover this whole section really well.

You now have wings!!!

I then added more layers of material, tying them over and around the central part, and covering the electrical tape entirely.
I made hoops out of tights too, so the wings can be worn.
All this was done with knots. I didnt use any glue.


Spray away! You can add glitter glue, jewels, whatever you like   Cheesy
Make them all pretty, and......LET ME SEE!!!!!
Post all ur pics Smiley

Hope this helped and wasn't to drawn out and boring!

Gah those are amazing! I'm in awe..
I still dont understand though which way the sequins are put on.. like say the sequins a bowl, do you put the open part facing the in ur case suede- or do you put the flat part on the suede?  Does that make sense?
But again gorgey shoes, those are wicked!<3 Shannon
Ok, drew u a lil diagram, hope it helps. I guess you dont have to do it like this, i just did cause i thought it'd stop the sequins catching so much.... hope this helps.  Grin (hope u hcan read it too!)

20  "There's no place like home...." in Shoes: Completed Projects by blue bunny on: August 02, 2004 02:00:08 AM
I'm new, and thought i'd post a project that i've worked on for the last two days.
(Sorry if the pic's a bit large)
I got married last year, and wore a pair of beige suede shoes that havent been out of the wardrobe since. I really liked the shape of them though, so didnt want to give them/throw them away.
When i got an invite to a friends wedding reception and i started fretting about what to wear, i thought i'd re-vamp my wedding shoes!

How i did it....

(I'm in the UK, so the materials i bought might not be available in the states)

I used a red, cold water dylon fabic dye, painted this onto the shoes, waited til it dried, then i used 'Appli glue' in pillar box red (Appli glue is a "Permanent, washable water-based glue for applique, foiling, and decoration on card, wood, glass, fabric, leather and most surfaces." It's also really flexible.)
I applied the glue quite thickly, and added each sequin by hand with a pair of tweezers.
Ok, sequins.... well, u know that sequins are kinda domed? like little saucers? for the next bit, if i say the sequins were used upside-down, it means that it's as if the saucer is the wrong way up..ok?!  Huh Undecided (hope this is making sense!)
I found that around the edges of the shoe (where the sole meets the upper, and the edge bit...where u put ur foot in) that it was best to use the sequins upside-down. This is because they stick to the curved bits better when they're upside-down, it also means they they won't catch on things when they're being worn. The rest of the shoe should be covered in sequins the 'right way up' as they reflect more light this way.
When i'd added all of the sequins, set it all aside to dry, and i was covered in glue, and had the stiffest neck i've ever had, i made the large bows for the front.
AND.........when they were finally dry, i stuck them on, and added the lil ones on the back  Grin


Hope u like them!
