Looks fantastic and your watercolors are really nice. AtelierBrigitte September 24, 2010 Yes, you have a spider too! Lovely illo – the web is beautiful. sandy leas September 20, 2012 How did you make the web? I’d like to do this one. I love it! Kirsten October 9, 2012 I used a watercolour masking liquid. It’s a pain to use because it’s smelly and completely ruins brushes, but you can get some really cool effects with it. Ruth March 22, 2013 This is beautiful! Would it be okay if I did a lesson on this with my art class? Once I make a blog, I will link it to this website. Kirsten Bailey March 22, 2013 I would be honoured 🙂 Nic Hahn October 8, 2014 I have seen this ALL over pinterest!! It became the inspiration for my 2nd grade art class. THANKS!! http://minimatisse.blogspot.com/2014/10/warm-and-cool-colored-spiders.html Alicia November 5, 2015 Can I ask how you applied the dye to get the effect in the background? It is awesome! Kirsten November 5, 2015 I used watercolour paints for the background. I applied the paint first, and then while the paint was still wet I dripped clean water onto the paper. Using good quality watercolour paper helps. Thanks for your lovely comment! Alicia November 12, 2015 Thanks for your response. Can I also ask what the web is made of? 5th Grade Art Schedule – Westwood Homeschool February 2, 2016 […] Glue Resist Spider Web project […] 1st Grade Art Schedule – Westwood Homeschool July 21, 2016 […] Crayon resist spider-draw 3 lines with white or yellow crayons.
