Introduction: DIY Insect Statues
In my childhood I used to spend my days playing with insects , my mother told me that I could have fun looking for dead ones and collect them , until today I still like to do it , but I decided to make a new way to collect them so I hope you enjoy this instructable! :D ( I'm sorry because this idea sounds a bit macabre ) .
For this instructable you will need:
A small container;
( maybe ) A tweezer;
A correction Pen;
A craft knife;
And obviously dead insects.
( The number os Paper Clips and Corks depends on how many you want to do ).
Step 1: The "Stalk"
You'll need a piece of the Clip so use the Pliers do break it or you can just twist it until it breaks. The piece must measure at least 5cm .
Step 2: Insects
Choose an insect and make a hole on him with your needle. Then stick the piece of Clip on him
Step 3: The Statue
Use the pliers to take off the pointer of the correction pen and drain the liquid in the container .
Once you've done it , dive the insect and then let it dry before you land it .
Step 4: Close the Container
Make sure the container is well closed if you don't want this to happen ( especially if you are alone at home :P ).
Step 5: The Base
To make the base , cut a piece of Cork using the Craft Knife and then stick the statue insect on it , you can dive the Cork on the liquid too if you want it to be also white like the Statue .
Step 6: Finish!
And there you have your insects collection transformed into statues! :D
I hope you enjoyed this instructable , thank you! :)
