I've had a few people asking how I make wings so this weekend while I was without internet I decided to put together a picture tutorial. Eventually I'll be posting this on my website but wanted to share it here first. Although the tutorial asked that you email me with questions please feel free to post any questions here in this thread or PM me. Wink

I hope this is helpful to some of you.

Awe that was nice of you Pop!
I am prolly using too much glue but I've found the Elmer's Brand ends up more cloudy and doesn't stick as well as Aileen's crystal clear tacky spray...I dunno what my problem is, lol...but I am prolly using too much. Do you have any tips for making sure not too much glue is applied when spraying?? I seem to be challenged in this area.

Also the addition of Gallery Glass is such a good idea, now I'm inspired to go and finally find some, it does add a nice touch!

MB, that's funny because I have a large can Aileen's Crystal Clear Tacky Spray but find that it stays cloudy longer then the Emer's brand. Poke Tounge
I've been using the Elmer's for a couple of years now and know it works so that's what I used for the tutorial although once it's gone I'll be using the Aileen's.

As far as spraying too much - I'm not really sure what a good guide is. I usually hold the can about 3 feet above the wings and just quickly mist them. I just move the can back and forth and let the cloud of spray fall on the wings. I don't know if that helps but it works for me. Wink
