Each display is crafted with hours of love, intention, and attention to to detail.
A fellow insect enthusiast aptly described by process as building a ship in a bottle has been the best way to communicate the level of precision required for this work. Every flora accent, millimeter of moss, or butterfly wing is precisely placed. Depending on the size and intricacies it can take anywhere from 4 to 40+ hours to complete, not including dry time.
The tools I use include an expansive and varying amount of tweezers and glue. I believe my tweezer collection in up to about 10 sets that I regularly swap between depending on the task. And I have gone through the painstaking process of determining which kind of glue is required for each step. I use a combination of Elmers Glue, E600, Well Bond, hot glue, and super glue within each display.
