Squeeze gauze bandage to make hair and narrow strips to make a halo.

A piece of "lace" may be attached to one side of the wing. Attach a lump of gauze bandage on top of the middle (because the cone has a conical shape).

Paint silver all over with a flat brush. Run the brush lightly over the surface, so the indentations remain black. You may apply several coats.

When dry, paint the wings, halo, lace etc. and sprinkle glitter onto the wet paint.
