Im about to build the wings for my Harpya-creature and have some questions for all the great puppet-makers here. I have a hard time deciding on how to approach it.
My idea was to cover the wings armature with thin foam to have something to glue the feathers on. But Im afraid that it will be to thick. So im thinking about removing the foam and maybe gluing directly on the wires, or maybe buy and apply thinner foam.
I want the result to be as realistic as possible.
The wings as they are now:

Anybody that has made realistic wings out of feathers? Any tips? Do you know how others have made it? Examples?
Every piece of help would be very appriciated :)

Here is the final result. Turned out great I think :D thanx for all the help and tips.
