    Default Loop Wing Pupa : A great way to add wing buds or unfolding wings to nymph patterns.

    Loops of stripped organza ribbon give a great impression of unfolding wings when tied into the thorax of pupa and nymphs. The crimped fibres catch the light and sparkle like the veins in natural insect wings and the wings are much tougher and last longer than wings made from feather fibres. Thanks for watching.

    What a great video with a great bug - I'd be brassed off if that ended up in a tree.

    Like the idea of the wings, will have to obtain some cream organza.
