Framed & Mounted Butterfly Display - Create A Unique Look

If you want to stand out from the crowd and have a unique home or office, you should look into the framed & mounted butterfly displays. In the paragraphs below, we are going to tell you about 2 of the common insects found in these displays.

How Does the Artist Get the Butterflies?

There are many different butterfly farms located around the world. On a normal basis, the normal lifespan of a butterfly is thirty days. Once the butterfly dies, the caretaker dries the body out and sends them to the artist. That's right, most of the butterflies you see in a frame have been purchased from a farm somewhere in the world, where the insect died of natural causes.
Now, let's take a look at some of the popular butterflies you will find on display.

The Blue Morpho Butterfly

This is a beautiful butterfly that is normally found in Central America, South America and Mexico. This breed right here is well known for being one of the largest butterflies in the world. They are very colorful and have black running along the edges of their wings.

Note: Some of the displays place the insect in a frame between two panes of glass -- this makes the framed & mounted butterfly display even more beautiful.

The Rainbow Butterfly

This is yet another beautiful butterfly and it is found in New Guinea. As the name "rainbow" suggests, it consists of a wide array of colors. Normally, there is a mixture of silver, green, blue and lavender.

Where Can We Purchase a Framed & Mounted Butterfly Display?

This isn't the type of art you will normally find in your local retail store and if you do, it will probably be a replica. If you want the real thing, you need to make your purchase on the Internet. There are many artists who are selling framed & mounted butterfly displays at great prices.

Creating Your Own Collection Of Mounted Butterflies

Butterflies are some of the most beautiful creatures on the planet. They come in amazing sizes, colors and pattern that are just great to look at. There are over 15,000 species of butterflies, each dating back thousands of years. While butterflies are beautiful to look at in the outdoor, they can also be used in framed art. If you want to bring nature into your home or office, then mounted butterflies are one of the ways to go. Here are the steps to creating your own collection display of framed butterflies.

Capturing a butterfly on your own can be a difficult task. Your best bet would be to buy from an online store. Most of the butterflies sold on the internet will have their wings closed and so you'll need to relax them and leave them to dry for few minutes.

The next step involves placing your butterfly inside an envelope, folding it and cutting a hole in one or two corners to allow out moisture. Take two slightly wet towels and place the envelope between them. Take the towels and store it in a box made of plastic. To prevent formation of mildew, place moth balls near the envelope. Once you've done this, leave the butterfly there for at least 24 hours, after which it will be fully relaxed.

Take out the butterfly from box and push a pin through its thorax with the wings open. Make sure it comes out of the other side. Using the pin, mount the butterfly on foam board and let it dry. Use a strip of paper to secure the wings from top to bottom. Make sure the strip of paper overhangs and pin it to the board without piercing through the wings. Now leave the butterfly to dry for at least two days and then frame it.
