Etsy Insect Dress



I found this beautiful hand painted silk dress on Etsy. I like the lay out they have used, its not a repeat pattern, it is just a one off, but it works. You can tell thats there has been a lot of thought into were the insects have been placed because the composition is all evenly spread and the shape and size of them make the dress look like its been planned very well and makes it look professional. I would love to have the materials do something similar to this in the future.

Manchester Museum.


These are just a few pictures of the insects in Manchester Museum. I decided to get some more primary research. I wanted to do some more drawing and I thought getting some close-up photos would be perfect. I am going to try and use the iridescent part of some of the bugs together with my drawing and see if i can make anything pretty.
