Hello Mynters, this week we have an easy beginner project: butterflies and dragonflies. To make them that much more beautiful and interesting, we're drawing them in a stained-glass style. To achieve this, you'll need to use PETG, translucent filament. 

But, of course you can use your favorite filament colors, such as glow-in-the dark - especially if these gorgeous bugs will find their way to your garden!
