hi jim, i've done wings before with wire. i'm not good about gages
(guages?) but it was thinner than coat hanger wire. i've used both stretchy
fabric, like bathing suit material, as well as thin fabric like netting.
both works real well. you can sew the fabric to the wire support, but glue
gun goes faster and works just as well. good luck, eileen
p.s. it's also a fun art activity to make sculptures this way. we made
leaves once that you can keep bending to change the shape.
