Web Effects

Postby secondwhiteline » Sun Jul 31, 2016 8:31 am

Can anyone point me to a good web effect for Marvel Legends-scale figures? I need something for my Spider-Gwen.

Webs that she's shooting or something as a base? Though not sure I know of either.

I have seen another customizer use wire (shaped into a web) and hot glue to get the large webbing effect; also similar techniques can be used for more streamlined webbing.

I'll try to find you some pics

I remember seeing those a longtime ago. Pretty cool. Looks like Todd McFarlane drew them.

You can make some of these effects, yourself. I bought some thin, white-coated wire at a local craft store. Determine an estimated length of how long you want to make the web effect. So, if you want an approximately 8" web effect, cut a piece of wire about 24". Measure out the first 8" of wire, then twist a loop in the wire, that will wind-up hidden in the wrist joint. Wrap the remaining wire around the 8" length of wire, varying the the amount of wraps and distance between them. Sometimes one wrap, two wraps, or 3 wraps. Then it mimics the way Todd McFarlane used to draw Spidey's webs. You can use some kind of sculpting material, at the end of the web. Also, you can do a grey or black wash over the web effect, to bring out the depth. And paint the loop, that goes around the wrist, black, so it blends into the wrist joint.
