Okay! I wanted to make up a very large garden spider and I finally did. I wanted to call him "The Tin Man" but that one's been taken. Besides, he's a spider and made of copper and not tin so I'll call him "Mr Tibbs" ??? What do you mean that ones been taken too.Hmmm! I know, I'll call him "Blue Bug" as he is royalty after all. Call him what you will. He's known to come to any name especially if it might get him some supper.

Notice how Blue Bug loves to roam the garden spreading gossip. (photos)

This very large spider is made of a 1 1/2 inch Blue Shooter marble with flecks of color all over. When you put him up to the light, you will see that the light actually shows through.

His legs are made of 1/8th inch copper U came: the kind I would put around a stained glass panel to finish it.

Overall measurements are: Side to side: 11 inches ( 25.94cm )
Front to back 10 inches ( 25.40cm )
Height: 2 3/4 inches ( 6.95cm )

I painted all the copper a gloss black enamel, then added medium blue, purple, yellow and white to finish him. I thought it would be better to see him in the garden if he wasn't just black.

I must warn you he has a lazy leg with a mind of it's own or so he says.

Blue Bug is a one of a kind spider right now though I do have more large shooter marbles I could make up another spider with. Maybe I'll wait and see what everyone says about him before I do another one which would be different in some way.

Imagine this two hands wide spider in your garden.
