    Hi Sean,

    That's a good point. I could possibly dry the pitchers over a period of two weeks to preserve colour although they won't be as vibrant, unless others have another alternative.
    I experimented with a butterfly that just dropped dead off a leaf. The resin has almost cured as I added a good dose of catalyst. Although the exoskeleton remains, the orange in the wings also remains. Why do you think this is?

    Cheers,
    Christian

    I am also trying to preserve pitchers like Marcello is also trying to do.For the moment they are kept dry under salt.
    The problem is when I will take them out.
    Asking to painter here in Italy he told me to buy some sort of liquid that is used in hospital to preserve human parts...
    Is this a good idea that will valid for long time?
    Anyway, is there another metod to preserve also pitchers without having to keep them in a box closed?
    Please help us and try yourself all possibilities!
    Thanks!
