YEP. THIS SPIDER PROJECT IS FOR KIDS.
(OR ADULTS WITH WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS!)
I won't go into all the specifics about newspaper strips dipped in wallpaper paste. You've known the how-to since you were a child. But I will recommend two balloons for the armature, although they are slippery and two balls of newspaper are easier to handle. You can also tape the latter together before you even begin with the pasty strips.
(Balloons are smoother, of course, but who wants to wait until the two pasty spheres dry before you join them together?)
When ready to attach the bent wire legs, push them way into the dry body and tape them well. Finish with a fine layer of small pieces of paper toweling, covering the taped legs as well. When that's dry (the next day), paint and add eyes.
|Paint markings on the spider's back if you want to!|
