I got a pair of heelless platform shoes that have a gorgeous shape, but I hated the finish of. So I stripped the cloth covering the plastic base of the shoe, bought a bunch of jewel beetle wings and some two-aprt epoxy, and figured I'd make gorgeous iridescent dragon scale shoes.

Problem is, it turns out jewel beetle wings are the first thing I've ever found that two-part epoxy doesn't stick to. It just flakes right off as soon as it's set!

Can anyone think of a glue that might stick to beetle wings? These shoes are going to be AMAZING if I can just get the wings to stick for more than a few minutes!
