Praying Mantis Tutorial by Rrkra Praying Mantis Tutorial by Rrkra

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

Thought it would be easier to explain :XD:

I think I'll leave it like this.
So yeah. Angry shiny bugs. Praying mantis is one awesome insect.

The materials I used for the green/orange mantis: 0.1mm braided fishing line, wire (probably steel wire, tried copper but it was too weak), 4mm bicones, Toho seed beads - short bugle beads, size 8, 11 and 15.
But it can be done with just one size of beads, too.

I love your work but cant always get the tutorials! Would love to know how I can get patterns for 3d beading. I prefer books as I apparently am not very good with navigating on the computer.

what type of thread do you use, and weight of the thread. if you'd be so kind to share that information.

Rrkra Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013
I use 0.10mm braided fishing line, usually.
But nylon/monofilament are fine too.
