Well I have made plain copper butterflies before but the whole rainbow idea made me think of how I could create a sprayed copper butterfly rainbow.
My absolute favourite colour combo is pink and green and this leads back to my childhood and finding an elephant hawk moth caterpillar (who we called four eyes). I saw him eventually emerge into the beautiful pink and green moth. So pink was covered as a colour in my rainbow, I just had to work out the other colours.
I started by trying to stencil all the markings but also did some hand painting, especially on ones like the Peacock butterfly.
