feathers from raveling cotton fabric for my artproject his wings.
i make often projects with not commen materials. I had maked this angelpiggy , its a bag too, and i couldn't work on it, because i had to find some solution for making feathers for the angel his wings.
I don't like to use real feathers from birds, and i always try a look a like from other materials or other methods.
I had found this withe thin cotton fabric. I like it, its from the marked it was cheap.
I like to use it for this project.
so i tryed out many things, but this was the best methode,
I like it to share with you all my methode i had find out, Its nice to do, but its taking for my big two double wings much time, so please be paintend or make less big wings,LOL
I hope you like it.
Lay the fabric flat on the working ground.
You must make lines which are diagonal.
the intension is that you make strokes which are diagonal of thread.
You can do that easyly to fold the upside edge to the other side.
Make a sharp folding linge ,its your guide later one!
Please click on the pictures for a better view.
Then you glue them one for one on the wings, like rooftiles, it will looks like real feather wings.;-)
On a boring evening its fun to do.
I hope you like this too.
When i was finished with the wings i have done a lot more with the pig so she looks no more like this one.;-D Some of you know i'm fond of bright colours.LOL
