    Hi. Jonni,
    We are making a leopard as a school project for my grandson and I noticed you have two different recipes ( paper mâché clay recipe and air dry clay) which do you recommend? This will be our first project.
    Thank you

    Hi! Im only thirteen and I love all of your paper mache crafts! So far I made a horse and a duck out of paper mache clay, and it’s so fun to use. Your snow lepord blew me away! I love your work!

    Hi again Jonni – to reiterate on ghost cat- he’s great. What I did is go over my original attempt of a snow leopard you have posted under my self-portrait. I wanted to see if I could get it more realistic with the paper mache clay. I will send you a picture tomorrow along with “my cat” sculpture that I did as a result on your on-line class. This one used my own armature and a slightly different pose. I’ll send you a picture of that too – both are unpainted, but I wanted you to see the work in progress. Just one more thing – I would appreciate a critique of the snow leopard that I reworked – it still lacks the realism I was hoping to get. Thanks.

    It seems much lighter than sculptures made with laminated paper, but the stuff is amazingly strong when it dries. I really appreciate every single one of your works.

    Just one more thing on snow leopard – how did you paint him? The painting of the piece is really an important step, and yours are always underdone – by that I mean it doesn’t look as though you have globbed on tons of acrylic paint, but onlly lightly touched the surface with delicate washes. Anyway the grey I’m guessing is a mix and then stained over with something beigy tan.

    Hello! I’m 15 years old and in my AP [advanced placement] Enviromental Science class we were all supposed to make a model of an endangered species. I found a picture of this amazing sculpture and well, I’m going to model my Snow Leopard after it! This is amazing, thank you so much for doing a piece like this, I really appreciate every single one of your works. Absolutely incredible!

    Wonderful!!!
    So, did you “skin” the entire piece with the “clay”? Or are you just using it for details?

    I’m SO exCITED!!!
