O.K. I know this isn't a lure but I wanted to try to make one of these and since I have posted lures on here before I thought it would be ok. The body of the lure is made with epoxy putty which I have never used before except to fill holes in my cedar lures. It really worked great for this. Easy to form and control. The legs are bailing wire and I built the thickness up toward the body with several coats of Etrex. I then used a dremel to scale down the lower ends to give it the actual look of the spiders legs. This spider sits 2 in. off the ground and it is 6 in. from one leg to the leg opposite it. This thing is huge!
