What is it with me and my fascination for making bugs?
...and dragonflies and butterflies? :)
Not too long ago, I made this bug and a few others,
but got the itch to make a couple more
I used a chair leg for the body on this one...
An aged lamp harp for legs.
I've used lamp harps before for antenna on my dragonflies too
A metal chair leg bracket for the head with little brass knob eyes...
Added hand painted wings...
...and he was ready to go.
I was actually tempted to keep this one for myself,
but I put him in the shop and he's already flown away.
That same day, I made this bug too.
The top of the body is part of a wooden lamp base cut in half and I attached
part of a wooden candlestick base to the bottom,
he was pretty big, and fat.
...Had to funk him up with aged metal brick ties on the body...
Funky verdigris metal eyes...
...and wings cut from pieces of wood from an old chair...
He's flown off to his new home too.
Thanks for checking out my new bugs :)
