When I was making my metal beetle I needed to glue the wings to the main frame of the body. As I was putting a new glue stick in the gun it exploded leaving a burn on my hand. A different glue gun did the same thing the next day.
I'd been around glue guns all my life, since my mum used to make flower arrangements. I think glue guns have it in for me.
I made this for school because I do fine art. It is made up of metal wire, beads and a bottom of a Christmas ornament. The beads were held in place by thin metal wire that was coiled around the wins. Wings were glued on my using a hot glue gun.
It took me around 550 - 1000 minutes to make. (Three 55 minute periods a week for around 6 weeks.)
I'll add updated photos when I bring it home for school in two weeks since it is busy being featured at my school's art expo.
