Every specimen I've ever collected has turned blue after death, regardless of the drying method used.
If viewed from a certain angle, even living examples can appear blue instead of green -

Is this your work?58chevy wrote: ↑Wed Jun 01, 2022 7:25 pm I thought I'd throw a beetle into this category. This cerambycid is one of the most impressive in N. America. It is usually 35 to 40 mm in length. The plicatum form has a green head. P. suaveolens suaveolens has a red head. P. schwarzi has black legs and turns metallic blue after death.
Brilliant if it is !!
It has a photographic quality about it. Really excellent work
What medium do you use?
I don't keep much of my art work for myself & I have not done any in a while.
Here is a water colour of an Australian lycaenid Hypochrysops delicia that I painted in 2016.
