Make your own Fairy Wings
I wanted to make a pair of fairy wings for Halloween but didn't quite get them finished in time. At any Rate These ones are UV reactive and were a lot of fun to make.

  • How to make a wing. Aurora Borealis Wings - Step 1
    Step 1

    I recommend watching Emilie Autumns crafters coast to coast vid, follow the link:

    his should tell you everything you need to know.

    The only thing I would add to this is that it's a good idea to seal the burn holes with clear nail polish. But be careful not to mad with it cos the acrylic won't stick to it very well.

    Other than that go nuts and decorate with whatever nick naks you have in the house I've used clip on butterflies, sequins and peacock sword feathers. :D

Definately. They really come to life and look special under a blacklight or in day light. The neon poster paint seems to shift depending on the light so in natural daylight they are really vibrant, The darker tones stand out more in dull light making them look quite dark and gothic. I'm really pleased with how these came out.

Yeah I used glitter blue on the burn holes and the edges of this as well. It's kids white tights, and I bought neon paint from

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UV-NEON-FLUORESCENT-POSTER-PAINT-11-COLOUR-ACRYLICS-/110717249326?pt=UK_Crafts_DrawingSupplies_EH&var=&hash=item5f77db422a.

Thats the bulk lot but you can buy the colours you need seperate. I wouldn't say there was nearly enough paint in the 30ml bulk lot jars so I had to buy more. I reckon about 100ml will do it. (Hence why there weren't ready in time for halloween).
I used metallic facepaint I had on hand on the edges to make them a bit darker and richer in tone. Then dark blue glitter for the edges.
