The last spread in Dixie's book is about the lost civilization of the Maya. The dewdrops were already there on the cobwebs, but I enhanced them with a bit of gold Pearl Ex mixed into Diamond Glaze. The spider was created by gluing a paper image to black Fun-Foam and giving him legs made of embroidery thread stiffened with PVA. He hands by a silver thread. The ancient Maya could calculate the orbits of the planets around the sun with an accuracy not equaled until modern times, yet their massive pyramids and palaces are now inhabited only by arachnids. How zen! Posted by Hello
