This poor guy had only one wing left :-(
He is tall! 5.5cm x 5cm (2.1/16" x 2")
935 silver, and the garnet set body and eyes add to his charming look.
I filled the lacking wing area with nacreous Fimo paste, baked the brooch for 30 minutes at 110 celsius, then colored with watercolor pencils and nacreous eye shadows.
Two layers of Pebeo glass clear (applied by drops with a tooth pick) then dried another 30 minutes in the oven at 60 celsius.
All process took one hour and a half :-))
My new "flutterby" is repaired, ready for the spring season !
