Jonni’s patterns make sculpting easy!
All of these patterns were designed by Jonni Good, a paper mache sculptor and inventor of the now-famous Paper Mache Clay recipe. The patterns come as a printable PDF that can be downloaded instantly. Some are flat patterns that are used inside an armature made with cardboard and crumpled paper or foil, while others are 3-D paper craft patterns that create the shapes for you.
How do I finish my sculpture?
You can use one of Jonni’s recipes, (look for them in the Art Library), or you can use paper strips and paste, or you can use Apoxie Sculpt or Magic Sculpt. They all work very nicely with these patterns.
If you have any questions at all about how the patterns work, or how to build your sculpture, I’m always happy to help in any way I can, so feel free to ask. I like questions. 🙂
