    Okay, I have a limited supply of real butterflies to use that are now in little plastic shiny envelopes. I need to know, what do you think? The bodies are flat (not real) but the wings are real. ;D

    I was thinking to like, decoupage them or????

    I want them to be matte or satin, to stay real looking…..

    Thanks for any suggestions!

      I don't have any experience with them, but I'm thinking that acrylic spray?

      Oh, spray! I didn't even think of that…hmmm…..

      I was thinking of maybe making like, cabachons and putting them in the middle of UTEE. Not sure if they are too delicate though.

        You can try with some sealant spray by Krylon. I think it would create a protective layer on it.

            LOL! You guys, it is like the kind they use for science class!

            A lady brought them into the store, and Kel got them for me and he gave some to Kassy!

              LOL!

              It is a sacrifice they made for art, they just didn't know it. Now, they can live forever on pages.
