I want all those boring old paper moths in my backyard to look like these instead. See more of Yumi Okita’s work via The Jealous Curator.

These are absolutely amazing. Can I find instructions to make them and if so, where? Thank you for sharing.

I love these and they actually look like the real thing! I would love to try making some myself. I grew up collecting insects with my father who was an Entomologist and we caught many moths on our backyard clothesline on a white sheet and a black light. I still have photos of some of those moths and also many butterflies that I have photographed over the years. Live ones that is. Please let me know if this process is available for me.
