I just finished the dragonfly the other night, the Praying Mantis I did last year and entered into my local fair. It's not nearly as good as the dragonfly and his head keeps popping off but it managed to take home the best in show ribbon!

They are beautiful! So delicate. The dragonfly is just wonderful. Applause
How you make them? Do you cut the metal elements and make everything from scratch or you use some kind of set of elements to assemble? Smile

Hey, Roger !!! You stole my words Suspect Laughing

LeeAnn, - you write books, repaint and etch models, ...make tiny sculptures from metal parts...what can't you do ? Shocked cheers

Are some of the pieces print-plates from electronics ? What is the head of the Dragin fly ?
Such fantastic fantasy, to find the fine parts for such delicate figures cheers
How on earth did you make those wings on the dragon fly scratch

They are MAGNIFICENT bounce Applause

Laughing  what can't you do ?  That's a question I'm asked very often. Wink

Each metal sheet is laser etched, then I just put them together. I end up with several cuts and bloody fingers when I'm done Rolling Eyes The nice part is there's no glue - just folding over tabs! So no gluing my fingers together! cheers Laughing
