The harvestman, like the camel spider, is an arachnid but is not actually a spider.  It is one of several species which are commonly referred to as "daddy long legs" (only one of which is actually a spider).  I chose this species because the body is a small lump (the spider's was more detailed), and I wanted to focus on making the legs as long and thin as I could instead of adding various body parts.  This model was wet-folded from a 20" by 20" square of tissue paper treated with methyl-cellulose.
