Packing things up for the BNRE (May 3rd, 9:00am - 3:30pm); www.facebook.com/events/723840…
My main purpose for attending this show is to help out Nathan Lefort ( www.facebook.com/pages/Nathan-… ) so if you like riker mounts/display domes/pretty butterflies/creepy bugs (and you're in the WNY area) - Stop by my table. Along with Nate's work, I will also be bringing a pile of handmade miniature riker mounts, mini hedgehogs, what's currently available from my Mini Patchwork Dragon Series, a few assorted mini plushies, art postcards, and every metallic art print I have in stock - Including the [finally available in print] Yellow Spotted Salamander illustration I've had floating around online for the past couple years. ~ I have a long day ahead of me, should be fun though. Might take pictures, so stay tuned.

Mini Luna Moth and Owl Eye Colorful Riker Mounts by Kyle-Lefort
Mini Luna Moth and Owl Eye Colorful Riker Mounts
--------

Up for auction on eBay; www.ebay.com/itm/Artist-Made-D…

-----

1 Luna Moth ~ Actias luna
1 Giant Owl Eye Butterfly ~ Caligo illioneus praxsiodus (underside shown)

Most riker mounts use white backgrounds, but in miniature the butterflies, moths, etc. a lot of the pretty colors just don't stand out like they do in real life. So I started using some fun metallic color backgrounds that compliment whatever I put in the cases. A little tricky to photograph, but I'm getting better at it.
