That's really nice. I was trying to make some wire wings for a dragonfly the other day and all I have to show for it is a tangle of bent wire on my welding table. I gave up and used pump screen.
The curly antenna is a nice touch.
He is a very delicate bug. Such a fun project! TYFS! Jlily
You've take bottle bugs to another level! Fabulous!
Thank you all for your wonderful compliments.
TinfoilHat, I just made a design on a piece of cardboard and bent the coat-hangers to match then welded them together. The most time consuming part was making the holes in the green bottle so I could screw the wings and legs on. I think it's the challenge of figuring out how to do things that keeps it fun. The curly wire was wrapped around a steel rod then stretched a bit.
As always, breathtaking. Your talent is amazing
Beautiful centerpiece for a patio table!! The wings came out so nice & bottles make a great body!!TFS Jan
