Carved from Black Cherry found in my dad’s woodpile and some left over pieces of Curly Maple. The Curly Maple kind of make the wings shimmer in the light, which isn’t captured very well in the photo. I also glued a rare earth magnet onto the bottom.
Added a new photo with another coat of full strength spar varnish (previous two coats were diluted 50-50 mineral spirits I had sitting around from other projects as a wiping varnish). Should add that it is about 4.5” by 7” in size.
Thinking of making more of a similar nature to sell for work charity drive, any opinions on a fair price (for charity) that people would consider paying for this type of carving? Also will be doing other insects such as butterflies, grasshoppers, beetles, etc., all done as fridge magnets.
