OK-quick post on those spiders! You need:
- Sculpey Clay
- Wire you can cut easily into 1″ to 1 1/2″ strips
- A round thing, like beads
- Black silver acrylic paint and paint brush
First, take about a quarter-sized ball of clay. Make a ball, then roll it down to more of a tube or 3D oval. Pinch it about 2/3 down; make one portion bigger and bulbous, the other part a small bulb. On the small bulb, pinch two pieces to make the pincers. Cut four pieces of wire 1″ long and four pieces of wire 1 1/2″ long. Bend in half. Stick the two 1″ pieces into the clay shape in the smaller 1/3; place two 1 1/2″ pieces on either side of the 1/3 in front, and two in the back. See above picture.
Set the oven to 275; bake for about 17 minutes, wire in and all.
After about a half hour, they should be mostly cool. Wait until then, at least, to paint.
Voila! Spider friends!
