An Angel made from Stub Wires and Silk Yarn
The angel is formed on a basic frame made from stub wires. Mulberry Silk yarn is wrapped around the frame. The pointed hat is made from thick glue, sprinkled with glitter.
How to do it
Cut two pieces of stub wire measuring 10cm and 25cm for the body.
Place the short wire across the long wire approx. 10 cm from the top. Use silver-plated wire for winding the two wires together for form a cross. Bend to form a hook at each end of the short wire for the hands - and at the top of the longest wire.
Pull the wooden bead approx. 6cm down on the wire for the head. Secure the wooden bead onto the wire using a glue gun. Apply a thick layer of glue from the top of the bead towards the top of the wire to make a hat, but not quite all the way up to the hook at the end of the wire.
Apply glue until the desired shape of the pointy hat is reached and sprinkle with glitter during this process.
Cut a 30cm long piece of Mulberry Silk yarn.
Place the yarn in the middle of the cross and wrap it around the wire shaping both arms. Finish with wrapping silver-plated wire around the ends of the arms for sleeve cuffs.
Cut four 30cm long pieces of Mulberry Silk yarn. Put these together in pairs and place them over each of the angel's shoulders.
Shape the dress from these four pieces of yarn. Gather at the waist using silver-plated wire. Trim the length of the dress.
Fray the ends of the yarn using your fingers and backcomb.
Cut wings from silver stamping foil. Edge a pattern using a sharp object such as a sharp pencil.
Attach the wings using a glue gun. Attach a piece of silver-plated wire to the end of the pointy hat (the hook) for hanging.
