Making beetles

I have been working on a collection of insects. Cutting, gluing, drawing and crocheting paper, cotton, card board, found objects and pages from “the handbook of insect collecting” – a publication from the 80s which I found in the secondhand bookshop down the road from my house. The book explains in detail the procedures for displaying beetles, however, I feel much happier releasing these specimens out into my garden.
