Finished Crafting My Atlas Beetle Named Him Henry

There he is, my Atlas Beetle all done!

I'll catch you up to speed if you missed my last post. I decided one day to make an Atlas beetle, no plans just looked at a photo online then went to work. I used tin foil, wire and homemade clay. You can see this bug in progress here. He's made to scale. Atlas Beetles are huge!
Before I could finish him I had to stop and catch a flight over to Calgary for my niece's wedding. It was beautiful! And every once in a
while I'd catch myself thinking about this beetle and how I'd finish it.. die hard crafter!

I came back home, rested for a couple days  then last night I got that urge to craft again. Finally at 1am this morning I put the final coat of paint on the bug and went to sleep. I could have slept in today being Saturday and all but early this morning I jumped out of bed just to see him, (I'm a weirdo!!) And took him outside for photos. I think he turned out pretty good. I see where I can improve a bit but for my first bug I think it's great. I'll keep him.

Why did I make a beetle you ask? I just wanted to. I love bugs. They are amazing creatures!
Anyway, I named him Henry :)

So that's it. Now I'm off to finish painting Edward Thomas the Snail. Thanks for stopping by.

You'll  find me online on...

And when I remember to post them, you'll also find my craft and dollhouse photos on instagram @  ojala_crafts.

See you soon!

UPDATE: Henry Goes To The River
