Posts: 2Ever get tired of purchasing wing material? If you are like me, do you find that the package always seems to contain a limited amount of material and the color as well as structure is often not exactly what you want? But what if you could make wing material at a fraction of the cost, in the color and structure you want, that floats and is as tough as nails. Making this kind of wing material is a fairly simple process. To start you need the following items:

1. A pressing table
2. Iron (Hobby or regular pressing iron)
3. Scissors
4. Heat-n-Bond (which in a polypropylene or polyethylene product)
5. Netting or Polypropylene (PP) Hair
6. Polyethylene foam sheeting
7. Alcohol ink for additional coloring
8. Teflon Pressing Pad
