And yet another UFO becomes a Finished Project, thanks to these fun fun FUN wings! This fantasy horse began its life as a little Breyer model unicorn. Lydia collects Breyer figures - she has several of this kind, so she gave me one to play with. He's been sitting on my work table covered with gesso and ready to go for months, but I was never inspired to get going on him until I thought of giving him wings.
I wanted him to be more purple, but I stopped here because I had achieved a subtle shading from pearl white to blue to purple to gold that really pleased me. If you click on the photo to bring it up to full size you can see the color shifts better - he really does look magical.
Hmmmm... now that I get a good look at his portrait, I think next time I work with film that pale for wings I will use lighter color wire. The purple wire I used for these is kind of overpowering.
The horse on the left in this photo is exactly the same as how the repainted one started out. Quite the change, eh?
OK, now that I've had some good fun with these wings I really need to get back to work on my dragon eggs. The month is wearing on.
