I have to admit, working with resin is one of my favorite things to do. And my most favorite thing to cast in resin is beautiful bugs. Don't worry, they are dead when I cast them. Also, I never, ever kill a bug for this. Mostly, I find them dead but recently, I have become the lady that little kids save dead bugs for. I'm okay with that. I love preserving the beauty of these small creatures.
These first two are darkling beetles that a friend of mine gave me.
This one is a beetle that I've never seen before, but my young cousin found it for me and I love it.
