What is the best material to use if I want my outside bat character to have wings like this? I found this picture online and I love the wings. I think I can get the colors close, I just don't know what fabric or product to use for the best results.

LOL that is latex painted over canvas. The "bones are 1/2" CPVC PIPE. The picture is from my traveling Monster museum that hits ren faires mostly in FL.

Buy a canvas painters tarp. My partner Dan made those, not me. He replicated the vampire I have in the permanent museum in Texas. Im happy to help you when I can.

That was a trick just to see if I would put my monitor on it's side to see the picture.

Those wings look like heavy gauge steel to me, rusted by slowly dripping acid over the metal for many days, all on a solid steel rod framework, welded together then painted with virginal blood from 10,000 baby spiders!
Nothing is as simple as it seems, now get to WORK!
