This is a continuation of a topic that I started over in the Beginner's Corner...
I have a project in mind that involves fly tying methods to recreate fossil insects. It looks to me as though the most important first challenge will be to make convincing wings. The groups of insects that I am interested have various kinds of wing forms, textures and colors.
I have some of the thin plastic films of the kinds used for the J:son Sweden system and similar materials on order and they should be here soon.
I am going to try laser printing directly to transparency film, as well as transfer techniques.
I'll try to make some headway and add updates.
