This is a project that my sister, Holly, made this year.
I think these wings are incredible!
You’ll have to excuse the pictures, because they’re off her cell phone, but I wanted to share the project because I think it is just plain awesome, and thought you all might like the inspiration.
She found this project on Crafty Butt blog.
Can you believe these ginormous wings are made from cardboard and paper mache?!
Yes! They are.
Next (not pictured) she cut the large part of the wing out of a heavy cardboard box they had left over from a freezer, and the smaller pieces she cut out of thinner cardboard and taped them on the larger piece. You could also glue them.
Then she paper-mached the entire thing.
Here’s a silly picture of my brother-in-law pretending to eat the spray paint.
Here is a picture of the wings being sprayed.
….and here is a picture after the wood sheen.
I’m keeping this technique in my mind for other things besides wings. Maybe a huge mirror or two?
Does this give you any ideas?
