Micro-fine detail of the wings and body of this dainty 3/16" (4.5 mm) wingspan, dollhouse miniature scale Ruby Spotted Swallowtail butterfly, are formed completely by hand in Fimo brand polymer clay. The 2D design in the wings is made exclusively of the different colors of the polymer clay itself - so there is no possibility for the design to ever wear off, fade, nor flake. The 3D design in the wings is completely formed by hand as well- Micro-scale ripples are carefully hand-cut with a razor across the surface of the wings, to follow the natural vein pattern in the wings of the actual butterfly it represents. Fine nylon fibers of various thicknesses make up the butterfly's head, antennae, proboscis and legs. I never use molds, die-cuts, or any shaping tool of the like in the creation of my GFF Miniature Butterflies; just basic tools such as razors, toothpicks and needles, along with special tools I have designed custom for creating and assembling their parts.


Remember.. Although a God's Flying Flowers miniature butterfly is so delicate in appearance, it is deceptively durable, as it is designed for regular handling- much more durable than a true organic butterfly! Strategically assembled with top-quality super glue, all components are litely flexible, so they hold a definite shape without breaking or tearing; resilience and strength are the key factors in my design composition.

The God's Flying Flowers Miniature Still-Life Ruby Spotted Swallowtail Butterfly is notable as a great carry-along conversation starter- Everyone loves to hear and tell their butterfly stories! It comes in a small sturdy snap-lid container that fastens securely, but is easy to push open; unless you have purchased a Clear Magnifier Display Box available in my shop for me to mount it in for you. Additionally, this exquisite dollhouse scale miniature butterfly makes for the perfect inclusion to almost any 1" scale (12x smaller than actual size, AKA Dollhouse scale) scene.
