Wispy Black Spider
Black spiders are creepy and crawly little creatures.
Give this creature a red spot on the belly to turn it into a black widow spider.
The black widow spider is one type of these sinister spiders.
Their inky black body has a reddish orange spot on the belly, long wispy legs and a large round tail.
They are one of the few poisonous types of spiders in the United States.
What would All Hallows Eve be without a Halloween spider or two hanging from their web?

1. Draw or print and cut out the pattern at the bottom of this page.
2. Put the paper or card stock pieces on black glass and copy around the guide with a permanent pen. Liberally shield the traced design with beeswax or Chap Stick.
3. A glass saw is needed to cut the shape. Make a point of cutting close to the line to retain the outline and all the small fine points.
4. Wash with dish soap and soak in clear water or employ glass cleaner to get rid of all pen marks and residue. Allow the pieces to air dry.
5. Put together the pieces on a prepared kiln shelf and arrange the shelf in the unit. At all times grasp the glass by the border to avert fingerprints.
6. Close the top or door. Switch on the kiln.
7. Observe the project at around 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. Because you want to keep the shape of the edges, don’t take these pieces too high. While peeping at your fused glass have on glasses with IR and UV protection.
8. Once the piece has the sought after look, switch off and disconnect the oven. If the unit is manufactured with dense fire bricks, you can permit it to cool down on its own. If however it is made with ceramic fiber, the oven must remain on and observed so that it doesn’t cool down any more than roughly 300 degrees Fahrenheit an hour.
9. As soon as the temperature falls under 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the kiln can be opened.
10. After the project has cooled down to room temperature, add a brooch back. Adhere the brooch back with a two part epoxy.
Try making these with red eyes instead of the suggested yellow.
These can also be made and added to another fused glass project, such as a plate, bowl, etc.
