    Default Mystery Wing Material???

    A couple of months ago I was at a fly tying demo night. One of the tyers used a sparkle translucent wing material for wings on some spinners. He said that it was material that he ironed (melted/ sort of welded together) into a sheet and then wing burned the wings. I'd like to find some. Anyone know what it could have been?
    Any other material for burning some good sparkle wings upright or spinner type?

    Jimmie- the stuff he was using was likely "ORGANZA" you can buy it at fabric stores.

    There's also a material used for packing delicate flowering plants, like orchids. If you have a Lowes or Home Depot near you, talk to someone in the indoor nursery section. This stuff is plentiful and they just chuck it out after unwrapping the plants- the wrapper from one plant has enough material to last probably a lifetime.

    Madjoni- beautiful flies! Love the sedge fly

    Madjoni: Those are wonderful looking flies, especially the work you did on the wings, gives the fly a very natural look, congrats!

    madjoni, I'm sorry but as far as I know we don't have any thing that we call nylon folio that we use in the refrigerator?? Any other hints? I looked up Organza, which very well may be the stuff, but it's not used for food applications that I know of...any more help anyone? I would love to make up some of this stuff and tie some flies with it.
