By Robi CohenSome of you may remember my impromptu creation of a butterfly out of 2 crab shells, found on the beach just hours before our In The Zone episode April 4th. Here is my Crabbyfly, which I named Bambi, in honour of my friend. (who is neither crabby nor flighty, just so you know).
The shells are naturally a cream colour with orangey-umber markings and are really quite beautiful.
WARNING:They can be rather delicate, so handle with care, and the sharp points are REALLY sharp (2 band-aids died in the making of this creation). Once you apply paint,ink, and glue it becomes stronger.

I attached all the parts with hot glue from the underside.
So go ahead --- get crabby!!!
