"Web-ster"

I've been sculpting this past week and I've also been dabbling with the paint when I get the urge to switch gears. This is one of the figures I hope to finish today..."Web-ster". "Web-ster" still needs his bucket painted and another little attachment in his other hand, which is finally dry. (We are in a flood warning today if that gives you a clue how much rain we have had the last 5 days along with high humidity levels, which really doesn't let the paper mache dry.)

"Web-ster" is a spider whisperer. He has drawn spiders close to him since he was just a tiny nub on the pumpkin vine. They have always created lovely lace patterns for "Web-ster" and he proudly wears their designs on his hat, bow tie and lapel. He also usually carries a few arachnid fellows on him, and is frequently seen with a group that follows him wherever he goes. If you listen closely in the evenings you can hear "Web-ster" humming a little spidey-tune to entice them to spin their silken magic...after all, every good spook needs a lovely spun web. It's turned into quite a business for "Web-ster" and his eight-legged pals.

Hope you like him!
Laurie
