Take two wing buds that have been printed on waterproof paper and cut them out.  I usually run the face of them over sandpaper a couple of times to give them a rougher look.

Step 10

Take the wing buds and color them the desired color.  I usually take a lighter color and color the wing bud first, and then a darker color and mix the colors.  An optional step is to apply a coat of finger nail polish or head cement to the wing buds.  This will also mix the colors from the markers together.  Sparkle finger nail polish can also be used.  Let them dry for a few minutes before handling.
