DESIGN: Blue Fairy Wings by taeliac DESIGN: Blue Fairy Wings by taeliac
This set is more than likely the one's that I'm going to do for my final. The base fabric is a really sheer silk, and the wire frame structure will either be black or white, I'm not sure which yet...

The pattern gets laid out on the fabric, and then the whole sheet gets dyed. Then, I'll have to discharge out the blue/green dye to get the white veins in it, and then cut the wings out and assemble the wings. Luckily, for my final, I just have to have the fabric dyed and discharged; I don't have to have the wings fully assembled, otherwise, I might die.

Ha, bad joke.

Get it? Dye. Die.

I know, I'm horrible.

I really don't like fairy wings where the wire is all around the edge of the wings; I much prefer the fabric to be able to hang loose and flutter. Besides, I think it defeats the purpose to dye the fabric if you have to do two identical layers - you mine-as-well paint them in that case, since the thickness of the paint wouldn't matter if there are two layers, and they're stiff so they don't move!

So, hopefully, this is what my final will come out looking like!

:giggle: Why thank you ;P
i have a question for you... i have this thing for swallow tail wings... and i love your design... may i perhapses use your design, but change the colours, for a tattoo?

Sure! I would be honored ~ if you would like an un-watermarked version or something, just let me know :D I have the uncolored version somewhere, too~

I always wanted to get wings tattoo'd, but I've already started a back piece, and it would look weird *is sad*
an un-watermarked one would be great! i really appreciate it. when i go looking for a tattoo i always look on dA first because i rather use someone's art work from here then let a tattoo shop design it. plus, i love your wings!
Oh i love that. <3
