Thank you for the sweet comments!
I like my Fairies to be natural looking. The kind I would find hiding in my woods.
The natural "recycled" wings have been a long time challenge to keep them preserved and strong enough to last. I used to heat laminate them years ago, but found them still too stiff and plastic looking, but it was the best I could come up with at he time. I was happy with it back then, but still wanted to make them look better and maintain their strength.. This new method with the other sealers have been great so far, but I am still experimenting. The real challenge would be to preserve butterfly wings and still maintain their powdery look! I'll be happy to share my tips with everyone if I come up with a new better way!
