Wing making tips
from ODACA Artist & Aux Members
I don't do a lot of dolls with wings, but I do make some small angels for Christmas that have wings. I like to use Dresdens. For those of you who are not familiar with antique German Christmas ornaments, Dresdens are die cut embossed paper that is gold on both sides. They were used both as components of home made ornaments, and in the case of the more elaborate ones, as ornaments on their own. I get my Dresden wings from a catalog company called Bloomchen. They come in several sizes. I use the tiny little ones that are about one inch long. I think they come in sizes up to four or six inches.
