    What is the best material to use if I want my outside bat character to have wings like this? I found this picture online and I love the wings. I think I can get the colors close, I just don't know what fabric or product to use for the best results.

    That was a trick just to see if I would put my monitor on it's side to see the picture.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.

    Those wings look like heavy gauge steel to me, rusted by slowly dripping acid over the metal for many days, all on a solid steel rod framework, welded together then painted with virginal blood from 10,000 baby spiders!
    Nothing is as simple as it seems, now get to WORK!
    hahahahah!
