I had someone ask me if I could try to make some sort of artsy bug pendant and I thought why not try? It was a bit trickier than I imagined trying to combine a bunch of different elements without getting the proportions way out of wack. But I finally settled on two little guys that have quite a bit of personality!
The first little guy...he's no more than 1.5 inches long with a pen nib as his thorax covering...The wings I made myself!
How do you ask? My secret...but it does involve wire and tissue paper. Actually I think there's a slightly easier way to do it so the next time I need to come up with some buggy wings I'll try to make a tutorial. It's pretty neat actually.
Here's the daddy. About 2.5 inches long, with some impressive filigree detailing. I used some PearlEx powders to color the bodies.
I've got another request to make more so there'll probably be more in the future!
