Just tried to paint on a butterfly wing, why not^^
A shiny lake, forest and a dragon. 

Their life is so short, only a few weeks. I picked some wings, so beautiful. But acrylics works bad on this surface^^'

And sanding that wing with superfine (400-600) sandpaper for extra grip would not work? Very fine sandpaper will not ruin the surface, but allows the acrylic paint to set.
Always make a try-out on a piece that you don´t need, Ok?

I take it that that butterfly wing is made out of polystone? :-? (Confused) And has a smooth surface?

(Resin mixed with mineral elements as chalk to give it a stony look, but with a very reduced weight)

I am so impressed. That cannot be an easy surface to work on.

Maybe if you sealed it first?

before calling her a monster, ask if the butterfly wasn't dead when she took the wing :>

Is that a real butterfly wing or an agget version? If its real how the hell did you paint on it without breaking it? They are so ever fragile.
