On the bottom of his labcoat where you can see the black paint showing through was a painted spider trailing some web tendrils. I decided to use a fun three dimensional spider button or something and then use a filament fiber on top for the web tendrils. Unfortunately, my LNS didn't have a good spider so I'm still on the hunt for a really cute one to secure on top of his coat in this spot. I guess I need to call around to some other shops and find one...or a few since it seems that halloween canvases could nearly always use a cute spider!
I beaded the beakers and used tortured flair for the smoke...LOVE IT! Tortured flair: start pulling one thread at the end of a length of flair..it basically unravels the strand and makes one hot mess...it will look like a lump of dryer lint but then you just sort of wad it up and couch it down. Works really great for smoke or clouds or snow. :)
