Butterfly Peg


I decided to something completely different with my second peg. When we went to AFTH last weekend I tret myself to 3 of the new AI's in the lights. I got willow, juniper and salmon. As I haven't used them yet I thought I ought to get them out. This is how I created the wings. I then stuck them to a piece of mountboard to strenghten them. I then printed the basic butterfly shape onto acetate, which is the shadowy sort of look you can see in the photo. I've scored it each side of the peg to make the wings stick up. I coloured the peg copper, added copper wire and beads, wobbly eyes, a gem for the nose and a bead for the mouth and a couple of pins for the antennae.

Love the 'face' great work - now I've got to go off and think (I 'stole' a peg today - a wooden one - mine were all plastic).
