"Mumifying my Queen"
« on: March 14, 2007, 10:56:57 AM »
I posted this quest in another forum by accident and couldn't erase. Oh well. Sorry moderators. I want to requeen this spring. I want to permananetly preserve my first queen as a desk top momento. Any ideas on "queen mumification" techniques.

The technique for butterflies isn't that different so this should help you.
