 Hello! Thanks so much for this tutorial. I'm making these for a cosplay, but I have some questions!

Firstly, do you think it'll be okay if the wire is a gauge or two thicker? I was only able to obtain 14-gauge for the interior and 12-gauge for the outline. The wings have a dragonfly-like pattern, so the spaces between the wire is about 1-1 1/2 in. thick. I'm worried that the iron won't be able to press the film down in-between these spaces.

Secondly, what exactly is the glaze made of? Can I realistically substitute clear Elmer's glue or something else that's easily obtainable? And how long should it take to dry?

I'm so sorry to pester you with questions; however, the fantasy film really pushed my budget for this costume and I want to get it right the first time. :)

Best to do a small test with all of these materials if budget is an issue. I've only done it the way I detailed, so while I assume clear Elmers and thicker wire would be fine, I can't say 100%.

Where can I buy fantasy film?

Would a translucent marker color over these nicely or no?
