OMD3 – Day 27 Wings…

So I immediately knew what I was going to do for the prompt ‘wings’. I have a little pond in my back garden and last month it attracted a beautiful red dragonfly. I was blown away by the intricacy of it’s wings and it stayed long enough (on my washing that was outside) for me to get a photo.

I created the wings by drawing an outline on some paper, placing some thin acetate on top of it and then painted my nail polish on top. I made sure to apply my top coat, Seche Vite, quite thickly. Once dried, I carefully peeled the wings off. As you can see they did leave some black behind where I hadn’t covered it enough top coat, however I trimmed the outlines anyway to make them appear more delicate.

It totally works right! I can’t stop looking at them and, as wholly impractical as they are, I don’t want to take them off!

  1. DUDE. DUDE. Ok this is insane. I saw the photo in the linkup and I figured it was a 3D decal or something that you bought. Well done!
    …these are definitely more “dragonfly” than mine are!

    1. Hahaha Thank you! I’m so glad you like it, and that you appreciate it wasn’t just a ‘stick on thing’! I hope others don’t think that too and that I took an easy option…
