The shape is the same as top former rf_79_52, but with ribbed wings.
This tool was primarily developed for thinner butterfly wings.
As an addition, we have implemented a Beadroller for the butterfly body on the tool. It allows you to create not only beautiful butterfly wings using the corresponding cabachon plate, but also a complete butterfly. It should be noted that a certain amount of experience is required to fuse a complete butterfly.

This video tutorial explains the work with our top shapers for butterflies:
We have also created a tutorial, which illustrates the working method of the top former and plates:
(in German language, English version follows)
The mandrel guide for the body shape is 2mm wide - for 1 or 1.6mm mandrel.
The shapes have a 2mm recess for the cabochon plate. So you can dip the cabochon plate into the shape to the desired depth and design a wing of the desired thickness.
We made the shapes a little larger than the corresponding plate, so that the plate with release agent can still fit in well.
The tool is 65x50x12mm in size (LxWxH)
Material - graphite.
