I'm making a handful of these little ladies; the mounted ones you are getting the exact one in the photo (no two mounts will be the same) but the unmounted ones are similar enough that I'm not taking portraits of each one individually. You will receive a spider very much like the one pictured. Because these are sometimes in stock and sometimes made to order, please allow a couple extra days for shipping.
The moonface spider is only vaguely part of the cameo spider family, as she has no found parts and is, in fact, all one sheet of copper. Her face is created with a die; a sort of steel mold that metal would have been punched into in a manufacturing setting. I, however, am not a manufacturing setting, and I still haven't gotten Mx. Squishems Kickpress into full working order, so I had to do this by hand with care and tiny tiny punches and frankly, it wasn't a great idea. But look at her, she's SO CUTE.
These are art objects. They are not toys, they are not jewelry. They are quite delicate and very pointy. because of her size, the Cameo Tarantula can get away with not being mounted, but only if you put her in a very safe place! I still recommend mounting. I have set this up an an option because plenty of folks are going to have some sort of object ready and waiting to mount a spider on, and you may prefer your own object. Maybe it's a teacup from your granny that you never use because you're too afraid of breaking it, or a bouquet of dried flowers preserved to remind you of a beautiful day, or you want to put it in the shadowbox with a pinned butterfly, or, more likely, something I would never think of. You will want to select something solid that will not be moved often; these are certainly more durable than a pinned insect, but not by a whole lot. I recommend e6000 as a bonding agent, though this will depend on what you are gluing to.
