I've had it in my head for a while that I wanted to make a pair of angel wings
and this is what I came up with.
I created my own design, cut them out of plywood and used texture
to create a carved feather look.
Note ~ This post was originally published July 2013
and has been revamped with updated photos.
They are large, almost 4ft tall.
I've been trying to get better with photographing my items
so I hung them in my home to take pics.
It definitely helps you get a better idea of size I think, although
it's not good for all the nail holes in the walls!
I painted them in soft white and washed with brown to bring out the detail.
I also made a pair of antiqued silver angel wings,
They are great anywhere in the home, over a bed, in a nursery,
family room or bed room.
Of course I had to make a set of gold angel wings as well.
Painted metallic gold and washed with brown really
brings out all the detail and texture.
The metallic finish still shines through subtly after the brown wash.
I also offer these angel wings in a small size too in all the different colors.
Thanks for taking a look at my wood angel wings, they are
all available in my Etsy Store.
All the proceeds from the sale of these angel wings will be donated to one
of my precious sisters who is going through a difficult time with cancer.
I can't think of a better use for angel wings!
Until next time...
