FANCIFUL FAIRY WINGS WITH JUDY SKEEL
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!
One begins with simple and basic techniques, including wire structures, fusing and
burning fabric and Tyvek.
Two teaches the joy of plastic, incorporating Angelina Fibers and Angelina Film and
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.
