Here's another thing I've been working on. I love how this turned out because it's so sparkly. It's beautiful. I painted the wood buttefly dark purple first, front and back. Then I painted the wood dowel lilac and finally the top a bright pink. I hand glued each jewel, man it's time consuming, with a hot glue gun. The bigger clear acrylic jewels are 6mm in size and the small colored jewels are 4.5mm in size. I really enjoyed working on this so much. Do you see where I added the eyes? I think it gives it a bit of character don't you.
There are about 122 4.5mm jewels on this butterfly give and take a ny I might have missed or counted over. There are about 151 6.5mm jewels. Give or take any miscounting I might have made.
There are two holes in the back so you can hang this on the wall.
I showed you a different view of the butterfly so you can see it in a different way and of course so you can see the dowel I talking about.
Have and excellent day everyone ^_^
