Welcome to Moth & Myth 101! We wanted to put together a guide for how to style our butterflies to make them appear even more life-like, and talk about which adhesives work best for a variety of projects! Follow along as Kari-Lise decorates a glass terrarium using three different adhesives in the video below!
As mentioned in the video, our favorite adhesives are:
Museum Putty - which holds our specimens in place without damaging the specimen or the item it is being attached to. Museum Putty is fantastic for many projects, but it is not permanent, and can move around over time, especially when exposed to changing temperatures.
Double-Sided Tape - there are many options for double-sided tape, and most of them work quite well! In the video, we are using a heavy-duty tape, that needs to be cut down to the desired size. In our experience, this tape can damage the specimen if you choose to remove it, but does not damage the wall or other item you are attaching the specimen to.
Hot Glue - which is fantastic for projects where you wish to permanently attach our specimens!
We hope that this little guide helps give some ideas about how to use our specimens in a variety of different projects!
