Tarantula has long hot weekend of transubstantiation.


Mold of tarantula’s body: silicon and plaster.


Outside of a spider, a dog is a man’s best friend. Inside of a spider, turns out, is hollow and you can see just fine.


Legs and backpack molded in silicon and plaster.


The molds are cut apart, but not separated all the way to the bottom. This allows an easier wax pour, and ensures proper registration.


The spider after molding.


The wax bits, cooling down for chasing/fitting. I’ll likely have it cast as these separate parts, then weld it back together when it is in bronze.
