Black beans are soaked overnight then pierced with wire to provide attachments for wings and to the mobile.
Wings are cut from recycled plastic, etching a wing texture with a nail.
The beans are painted first with silver acrylic paint, then a layer of white glue tinted with green food coloring.
Quinoa eyes are glued on and painted with red nail polish.
The flies are attached to a simple mobile structure made out of thin wire. Thread is used at the joints and to hang the mobile so that it can move more easily.
