One set of butterfly wings for your one of a kind fairy sculpture.



These once very delicate wings have been especially prepared and sealed to a robust finish



Just add wires using a compatible adhesive such as fabritac, e6000 or superglue and they will be ready to use.



You could embelish them with microbeeds or jewelry findings or leave them beautifully natural



*******



DETAILS



These wings are a feint green colour -a bit like old fashioned glass.



The patterns are brown



The top and bottom wings are joined together to measure about 9.5cm long and 5.5cm wide



with a total wingspan of 19 cm







Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

***********

MAKING THE WINGS

Preparing the wings is a very delicate, painstaking and time consuming process,

during which 5 out of 10 pairs dont survive :-(


I have spent about 2 years trying out lots of different combinations of artist products suitable for stabilising and protecting the wings
These prepared wings have been sitting out their test period for over a year now so you can be sure they will last you and wont go disintegrate and become tacky.

Some of my other butterfly wing experiments have !

************

You may like to know that either the butterflies' bodies or antennae were broken and so were rescued from going in the collectors trash and given a new lease of life!
