A Paper Mache’ Ladybug in the Works! And Spider Junior is ready for his dots!

I’ve got this ladybug ready to be wrapped in the floral tape! I haven’t worked out completely how I’m going to do his arms, but I’m thinking of using galvanized wire and then making the “hands”, from Celluclay or Paperclay. I’ve got the first coat of white paint on his “eyes”. So, he is coming along nicely. And slowly but surely, I’m rounding off the head shape for the wooden ladybug. I don’t want to rush it cause the wood could crack and break. So, little slivers at a time, till it is the roundness that I’m going for. And Spider Junior’s three coats of shiny black paint are finally dry enough for his dot patterning to commence. I’ve got to get his “eyes” painted, they’re gessoed, they just need a few coats of the white paint and they’ll be ready to be painted to look like eyeballs.

So, some ladybugs are in the works and Spider Junior is coming along nicely! I’ve been hanging out on Pinterest.com., looking at how other people have made their various ladybug creations. Working on ideas for how I want to do my cross stitch ladybug picture and my feltie ladybug.  Pondering different options. So, that’s what’s going on so far in the way of ladybugs and spiders. I hope all of you have a VERY NICE DAY! STAY WARM & DRY! HAPPY LADYBUG MAKING!!!! HAPPY CRAFTING!!!!!
