#1: Custom Wings (Help) Author: Badjuju86, Location: 'Space between dreams & consciousness 'Posted: 0 ---- Okay ive been looking at all kinds of birds & dragon wings. Learning the feather lengths & researching what type of materials to use. But everytime I go to craft stores they never have craft mesh to learn with or for beginners when it comes to wings & what not for your custom dolls & what not. What my question is, Is their a customizer out there that can give this ol' girl a few tips on how to begin using & making custom wings for you ponies even what materials are best for beginner wings. Ive never been one to go out and buy pre-made wing. So if theirs any out there that hear my cry for a few new tips. ^_^ plz help <3 xoxox

You may want to check there in other stores too. You can also try using aluminum foil as well. I tried that out on a fakie before I actually went and bought mesh, and it worked out fine.
