Paper Wings

I've been VERY busy making, and shipping my clay angel wings.  However, I needed a little clay break.  Still in angel wing mode though.




When I picked up a bunch of handmade paper at an estate sale I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I had an idea kicking around in my head that they would make great angel wings.  I used two different kinds.




I cut out my angel wings with one, and tore strips with the other. Then I layered the strips onto the wings, overlapping, and gluing them.  Next, a little trimming.




Beautiful.




I love the way they look with the light shinning through.




I have a few different shapes I'm working on.  Ahhhh, a brief clay break.  Very brief.  Back to work.

Rosemary,

This is beautiful. Everything you make I love. If I lived near you to go to your shows I'd be broke.

Beautiful Rosemary! I could see them made on a larger scale and used as a Halloween costume for a little girl.
