My beetle mania continues, but the drawers are not at all final. There may be one drawer, but probably not two. After consideration, I find that I am bored by my the drawers at the moment. I am underwhelmed by them. So many of the beetles will not be in the drawers at all. If I do use the drawers that I have at hand, they will need to undergo considerable alteration, in order to be satisfying.
I count more than thirty beetles so far, made from seven different molds. The originals for the molds range from my first carved alabaster beetle, to a carved soap beetle, and several clay beetles. Most of the thirty or so beetle casts are made from polyurethane resin, a few are epoxy resin, but I have also made a set in plaster, and a few in an acrylic cement mix.
Now what to do with all my lovely beetles? TBD
