procedure for resin embedding of beetles?


Recommended Posts

I didn't see this topic in the archives, so thought I'd post the question. Out of the several reddish brown stags I collected recently, the thought has occurred to embed a male and female in resin (the dead samples are currently in the freezer now... for a week... and then I want to mount them). I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has done this and would kindly share your experiences. I'd like to get more information on such topics as: 1) proper drying out of beetles before resin embedding; 2) resin brand recommendations, particularly those that won't yellow over time; 3) embed procedure (layers, vibrations to ward off bubbling, etc).
