Bead wings - dragon v2

Mostly a 'note to self', but maybe someone else will find it useful too. Principle of making wings for him -… .

Materials = fishing line/thread + beadwork needle + seed beads.

Any seed beads should do. Though if ones used for membrane are noticeably smaller or larger than the ones used for carcass - wing will curl.

This kind of wings looks better with wire inside the arm and fingers. Otherwise they are too big to hold any pose.
Feel free to ask questions. I know that I make no sense sometimes =D

can you start with fewer beads? like 8 or 6 instead of 12?
Rrkra's avatar
Yeah. Then there will be less fingers (or thinner fingers, or having to add some extra beads when starting fingers).

could you posssibly make a tutorial on how to attatch wings and legs?
Rrkra's avatar
I think I had something about attaching legs in big dragon toy tutorial...
But the way changes on every new project, so I don't even have a solid method for myself =(
