  1. Uneducated question...How do you get them to look like they are floating? Posted 13 days ago
    1. They are pinned, I simply Photoshop away the pin afterwards. Still have to paint the pin black, would make it easier. Posted 12 days ago
      1. You can buy black insect pins. Size #2 is good for general use. Smaller sizes for smaller insects and larger sizes are best for bigger insects. Posted 11 days ago
          1. Thanks so much, saved to notes, will look into this later. I definitely need black pins are pins far far thinner. Posted 10 days ago
            1. You're welcome...insect pins are definitely much thinner and should be useful for your purposes. Posted 10 days ago
