I found this beautiful idea at "Shabby Chic and I" blog. Visit Tanja's beautiful blog to see the tutorial on how to make the wings Click here
I did't want to see the cardboard, so I applied All-Purpose Joint Compound with a brush to give a feathered texture to the wings.
I let the All-purpose Joint Compound dry completely. Then I primed the wings, and painted them white. After the paint was dry, I Applied gold paint with a dry brush--be sure not to saturate the brush with paint. Wipe the excess paint on a piece of paper towel, then apply on surface with light strokes. This way you will see the feathery texture on the wings.
I decided to hang the wings with my shabby chic paintings.
