As to how much I liked these rusty butterflies once they arrived. I put off ordering for quite awhile as I wondered if they’d be too cutesy. But they are edgy & fun & look really cool with Prima rust pastes or a swipe of brass paste or Metallique paint swiped across them...wow! The metal is a nice contrast with paper flowers & other embellishments.
I am teaching a Steampunk class at our library, and I saw these used (and referenced in material used) and liked the look within the choices they used to create a wonderful collage, they are sturdy enough to take layers of paint to get the texture needed for steampunk Prima is wonderful, and I have discovered that the Finnabair line is fabulous, not just the Mechanicals which i bought others, but the pastes, paints, etc. are great quality and again the pigment is deep, which I like when I am working with several layers.
