The suggester said: "Comet Moth, Silk Moth Series by ~CopperMoth is a beautiful combination of metal craft and silk fusion papermaking. The silk wings giving nod to the silk cocoon a Comet Moth emerges from once its metamorphosis from a caterpillar is complete." ( Suggested by ewm and Featured by Talty )

I just joined about an hour ago and I find your piece absolutely fascinating. May I ask?... Did you hand paint the silk after gluing it onto the copper? It's absolutely gorgeous.

No glue or painting on colour involved in the making of these moths. I grow the copper on the silk in a process called electroforming. It takes a lot of time and special perpetration.

Beautiful! All the little details on the end of the wings look amazing and how you did the antennas is just "wow, how in the world did you do that?!" :ohnoes: They are so delicate, it must have been one heck of a job to make them look this way. Fantastic work!
