Thank you - I bought a wig at the drug store and have used it for several projects.  I cut two strands of hair from it and braided them to the desired length.

Thank you and I was looking at your work, it is very nicely done and I love your leave pieces.  The way you display it is also very nice.

Hi Nanette,

The wings are done in pieces.  There is a set of long dark feathers at the bottom of the wings that are glued to the each wing piece.  Also, a gourd piece has been place over the wings down the middle.  There is a little work done with Apoxie Sculpt which is the feathers along the bottom edge of each wing that overlap a little of the wing.  The feathers at the top of each leg are also Apoxie Sculpt.  I'm glad you enjoyed it.  Phyllis
