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!
