Black Widow

This is a Project for a Contest, the Challenge is to make a Creature based just on a Styrofoam head, using the most simply materials on hand. And so I did

I just wanna say that I have no training at all on FX Make up, I'm a Sculptor/Artist/Artisan of many talents and YES is it my dream on going to a FX Make Up School!!

I was inspired on the big jumping spider I have on my garden, I think they are cute! This came out of my blank imagination I didnt watch any reference of picture design or so, was just the spare of the moment and well I do like making Females Characters.

- Styrofoam head
- Styrofoam balls (and some extra cut off pieces for horns) 
- News Paper
- Masking Tape
- Mod Podge
- Acrylic Paints
- Paper Clay (Premier)
- Cold Porcelain (what a heck is that? Is clay made out of corn starch and white glue)
- Diamond Glaze
- Craft Paper
- Faux Hair
- Vintage Jewelry
- Trim and lace
- Craft Roses
- Tacky Glue
- 3D Paint
- two pieces of foam
- Hot glue gun

Here goes step by Step pics:
