Hello everyone!

I'm Shymer from the mernetwork. I'm looking forward to chatting about fairy things<3

I had fairy wings long before I learned about mermaiding. I made them all myself.
I started out with the clotheshanger and hose method, using ribbon to stop them on to my back. I quickly moved on to spools of wire and organza, but the fabric was too loose of a weave and didn't paint well.
I found an artist named Renae Taylor who makes wings from paper. Here's her etsy-

I've since made paper wings inspired by her method. I like the u shape wires to hold it to your back instead of the backpack ribbon style. I also like the freedom of movement that the u shape gives.
Paper can be pretty sturdy (though heavy sometimes!)and paints well.

My biggest set is inspired by the Luna moth. It has a six foot or so wingspan, which makes it impossible to wear most times

I've been uninspired for the last couple years. I hoped to sell wings (mostly so I could make more without having to store them in my apartment), but I am unsure about the process just yet. I don't want to sell them until I know my method is solid.
I do have a pinterest board with lots of butterfly and moth wings for ideas though. Maybe you all will inspire me to get back into it <3

Photos when I get the chance! I'm technically at work, so...

Faerie Mermaid ...
Hey, Willow, welcome to FaeNetwork!

Would you share more details of your method for paper wings (unless you prefer to keep it a trade secret)? I admire Renae Taylor's wings, too, and have been wondering just what she does with paper.
