ANTS The QUEEN ANT was created using a LPS Butterfly. Her wings were replaced and are held secure with Apoxie Sculpt and Super Glue. Her antenna's were removed, then replaced facing forward. The WORKER ANT was created using a LPS caterpillar. His number of legs was decreased to six. A small magnet was inserted into his feet. The custom BASE has 8 magnets inserted throughout. A metal plate in the back provides a stand for the ants to attach and peak out from behind their anthill. The figures was primed, painted with both air-brush and hand painted with acrylic paints, and finally, sealant was applied to protect from wear.
