Make use of old 2L soft drink bottles and the magic of Fevicryl products to create this winged beauty which would look very attractive in your garden.
How To Do it Yourself
Take waste soft drink bottle (2L). Draw the petals with CD marker. Cut 2 different designs of butterflies on a folded A4 sheet.
Make thin stencil cuttings on the folded butterfly cuttings to create mirror images of the wings.
Place the butterfly cut out on the bottle, just below the neck and outline using the marker.
Make outlines of the butterfly design and petals with Fevicryl 3D glitter (colour of your choice) and make the border just above the bottom. With fabric glue, draw free hand design for texture. Let it dry.
Fill all the designs with Fevicryl glittering glass colours, part-by-part (let on part dry before doing another). Also, dab with glass colour near the bottom textured area. Let it dry.
With a sharp knife, cut along the outer line of the butterfly except the head and tail portions. Also, cut the petals.
Around the butterfly design, give frost effect with Fevicryl acrylic colours combined with fabric glue and little 3D glitter mixed using a sponge.
For the danglers, old caps of Fevicryl products are used. Among them, few are covered with layers of Shilpkar mixed with Fevicryl gold powder and the remaining are coloured & decorated with Fevicryl 3D glitter. Shilpkar beads are made and coloured.
Finally, light a candle and hold the opened wings & petals (one at a time) far enough from the lit candle to use the heat for bending them outward.
Now the winged beauty is ready to hang in your garden.
