soak the ball overnight in bleach and then run it through your washing machine a couple of times and then douse it in gasoline and set it on fire and then -- just kidding, jealous i don't have a federer ball... they make collector's display cases for baseballs. my guess is a tennis ball is about the same size and would fit perfectly. here's a link to a site that will show you what i'm talking about. http://www.americansportscollectibles.co... try you local hobby/coin/sports collector store. they probably sell them. good luck.

I have embedded specimens in acrylic. It isn't easy! Getting the acrylic into all the spaces without trapping air bubbles is not very easy to do. Labs that do this kind of work have a vacuum oven. The insect would be suspended in acrylic with out the activator and a vacuum pulled in the oven. After all the bubbles have been removed the acrylic is drained off and a mixture containing the activator is added and vacuum treated a second time. The acrylic has to placed in a mold treated with a release agent so it can easily removed from the mold. If you have some shop tools you could mold it in a block and then cut, shape and polish the specimen. I enjoyed the process but I didn't have the time to do the preparation and finishing of the specimens.

I have also done insects in resin. Getting the air bubbles out is very difficult. You would need to practice on insects that are much easier to find. When you trap a air bubble next to the insect it looks like the insect is silver colored. Also the air does not appear when first place in the plastic, the air is trapped in the insect and you will not know until it dries if air was trapped. Unless you plan to spend a lot of time on this I recommend you select another way to preserve your insect.

If you want to reserve a bug for a bug collection, I would reccomend putting it in alcohole for a few days. Then let it dry out and after its dry just pin it onto the bug collecton and there you have a preserved bug. I hope this ansers your question.

the life of a watercolor painting really depends on the type of paper it is on. if the paper has a high acid content, it will deteriorate in less than 2-3 years, even in the safest condition it may be. deteriorate in terms of colors fading and yellowing of the paper itself.... they say that the best way to preserve a watercolor painting is in its preparation, coupled with the best materials and proper display/storage. but if you dont know the history of your watercolor painting, the best way to preserve it is to keep it away from light, away from humid places, and away from possible contaminants. in otherwords, if its new, display it, if its old, archive it. =)

Before Framing: Place your painting between two pieces of acid-free paper to prevent damage from dust and dirt. Lay it flat and keep it out of the light. Store it in a cool, dry place. When painting a picture, use acid-free paper and high-quality paints. Paints should have a light fastness rating of 1 or 2. When purchasing original artwork, speak to the artist if possible. Ask about the type of paper and paint quality used for the painting. Framing: Frame your painting as soon as possible to protect it from dirt, dust and handling. Mat your painting using acid-free mat board. A mat allows air to circulate around the painting and prevents damage from moisture. Hinge mount your painting. Mounting your painting provides support and protects it from bending and warping. Frame your painting under ultraviolet (UV)-protective glass to protect it from fading. Seal the back of the picture frame with paper to keep dust and insects out. Hang your painting away from direct sunlight. Vacuum mounting is not recommended for quality artwork. This process permanently fuses the painting to the mat board, reducing the value of the piece. It is recommended for inexpensive posters only. It is worth the investment to have good quality art mounted, matted and framed by a licensed, professional framer. Do not place artwork directly against the framing glass. This will trap moisture and damage the painting.
