Preserving Butterfly Wings
I am trying to find a way to preserve the natural color
that appears in moths and butterfly wings. Once they die they start to
fade I especially have this problem with the luna moth. Just so you know
I keep them out of the sun light or any light for that matter. I also
laminate the wings .Is there some sort or preservative spray? etc...
This site has extensive information about mounting and preserving
butterflys, I did not see any mention of ways to enhance color in specimens.
