Dollar Store Butterfly and Resin Glaze

It is easy to coat dollar store butterflies with resin.

 The butterfly is made with real feathers and appears to be hand painted. 
It only cost $1.

 When I brushed on a glaze of Envirotex Lite resin the paint really popped. 
I let this side of the butterfly cure for 24 hours.

 Then I painted on a glaze layer to the back side.  This will make my butterfly much stronger.

When the backside was cured I applied a third glaze to the front side. 
My butterfly is very strong now!

This necklace is a showstopper!

Beautiful! I am curious how the holes were put in the butterfly so that it could be attached to the necklace.

I just punched a hole with a 1/8 hole punch!
