these I soak in food dye with water and a bit of vinegar to set the color. Use the scent free sheets. When they are dry I cut them in strips and wrap them over thread for a neat and clean body. You can overlap the edges or twist them for a different effect.

I also just read that they keep mosquito's off you... so try one in your upper vest pocket.

I use the spent or used ones to create wings - There is a Bounce fly pattern out there that recommens hitting the sheet with an iron to remove rinkles. Also I've been tying egg patterns in which I rip off pieces to create the tailing membrane that you see on egg patterns sold in some fly shops. I'll try and post up some detailed photos.

Agree they make great wings - and easy when using MT Fly wing cutters.

I think recent reports have these sheets as toxic chemical bombs.
