      Fanciful Fairy Wings class


Do you love fantasy characters?  Do you love playing with assorted fibers and art supplies?  This class may be just what you are looking for!  Join Doll Artist Judy Skeel and learn several methods for making a variety of wings for your fantasy characters.

 This workshop demonstrates a collection of wings created using Organdy fabric, Tyvek, Angelina Fibers and Angelina Film, 3D Crystal Lacquer and Apoxie Sculpt as well as Liquid Polymer Clay, and is a plethora of ideas and information on wing techniques and construction. Students are encouraged to create as many wings as they choose but are not expected to purchase every supply listed and demonstrated in this workshop. With so many variations offered students will learn to adapt techniques and mix and match supplies for endless combinations and one of a kind wing creations.

Nearly 50 wing patterns are included in various shapes, sizes and colors for adaptation and creating pleasure.  Techniques include melting, burning and baking, adding textures and embellishing and wiring to attach to fantasy characters. Also included are steps to pose wings, add color and veining to improve "common" wings, distressing and aging wings and finally how to embellish wings for that final pizzazz!

Lesson One begins with simple and basic techniques, including wire structures, fusing and burning fabric and Tyvek.

Lesson Two teaches the joy of plastic, incorporating Angelina Fibers and Angelina Film and other “plastics.”

Lesson Three demonstrates the use of applying liquids like 3 D Crystal Lacquer to create wings, as well as incorporating Apoxie Sculpt into your wing structure.

Lesson Four will take you step by step through how to create wings using Liquid Polymer clay using your oven or a heat gun for very different results.

Lesson Five will teach creating wings from random objects such as silk flowers and handmade paper and will take all the techniques from the previous lessons and mix them together with endless possibilities.

Lesson Six finishes this detail oriented workshop with three different Free Motion Embroidery techniques applied to wing making in their own way. This workshop includes hundreds of photos and detailed step-by-step instructions. Judy Skeel has been teaching dollmaking for more than a dozen years to doll clubs, doll conferences and on line.  She is regarded as generous and patient as well as a fun instructor.

 Join this class and let Judy give you the wings to fly!
