    Allow paint to dry thoroughly between each coat and color. Note: Two coats of paint may be needed.
  1. To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above). Enlarge pattern.
  2. Paint canvas with gold paint using a 1" brush.
  3. Lightly trace pattern onto canvas.
  4. Cut out long pieces of wings from metallic paper.
  5. Punch or cut out approximately 100 total tear-drop shapes from all 3 papers.
  6. Beginning with the inside of the wing and working out, place the long wing pieces as shown. Use the adhesive foam squares to give height and dimension. NOTE: Slightly overlap each long piece. Squares may need to be cut in half.
  7. On the last outside long piece, run a thin line of glue along the outside edge and glue it down to canvas.
  8. Starting with the inside top of the wings, use the foam squares to attach tear-drop shapes, overlapping slightly.
