Dragonfly in Amber Glass

For this dragonfly, I used a clear sheet over amber.   The instructor suggested it for greater visibility.  She didn’t quite understand that I was a skinflint who didn’t want to buy more clear glass, I guess.  This was before I had tested the mica pigments to see which ones worked (bright gold) and which ones didn’t work at all (aluminum).  I managed to pick one of the good colors, so the dragonfly came out very well.
