Weevil Update

26 Feb

A week of warm weather allowed for generous weevil practice. Everything seemed to be peachy, until my husband mentioned how, instead of weevils, he only sees tentacled creatures with floppy horns on their heads. Now, I am having trouble unseeing that. At any rate, the weevils are coming along! I am most pleased with their tiny antennae, which represent my first successful hair-thin stringer applications.

I still like the first one the best, with the turquoise weevil and green polka dots. The cute pair both had some reduction scum, which was removed with a dip in the Etch-all. That pair is also where the “tentacled floppy unicorn squid” is most prominent. Note to self – don’t let the background color show through as much, if at all, and maybe dial back on the black line separating the thorax from the abdomen. (It’s not a smiley face, which I know is hard to believe.)

More weevils to come, once the weather cooperates!
