These angels' body, arms and legs are made from acrylic yarn and pipe cleaners on a pom-pom maker. The hands and feet are modelled from Silk Clay which is also used for covering a small polystyrene ball for the head. Pipe cleaners in gold and silver are glued on for the wings and pushed into the top of the head for the halo.
