Test the flexibility

Spreading Butterflies: Step 1. Test the flexibility of the butterfly before spreading. Use forceps to loosen and flex the wings, carefully. If you can't open the wings easily the butterfly may not be ready for spreading. If the butterfly seems too stiff don't proceed with spreading - you will probably break or damage the wings. Put it back in the relaxer for a few more days until it is totally supple.
