These four patterns are included in this set:
This set of downloadable patterns includes two different masks, the lion and wolf, that you can wear to a party or display on your wall (like I do). Also included are the giraffe, which stands on a shelf, and the life-sized baby Indian elephant.
Each pattern comes with complete instructions, and you can download the PDF file right after ordering. That means you can get started on your projects right away.
How do the patterns work?
- The patterns for the wolf, lion and giraffe create all the shapes for you – just cut them out, tape the pieces together, and add paper mache or paper mache clay. Then paint them any way you like to create beautiful one-of-a-kind works of art.
- The baby elephant is slightly more complicated – but don’t let that worry you. This pattern has helped thousands of people create a baby elephant sculpture of their own, and many of those folks had never sculpted anything before.
The inner pattern for the elephant, which you make with light plywood or heavy cardboard, sets the outlines for the head, body and legs. You add crumpled paper and masking tape to this pattern, following the instructions in the video, to fill out all the rounded forms. Then add paper mache, and paint.
Be sure to watch the videos that show you how each pattern is put together and finished.

Jeg har købt dette sæt og da jeg forsøgte at downloade, ville den ikke åbne, jeg blev ved med at klikke og til sidste sagde den at jeg ikke kunne hente den ned mere og lukkede ned.
Problemet er bare at jeg ikke fik mønstrene
Købet blev lavet af min mor Lisbeth Nørreslet
Kan du hjælpe mig?
I’m sorry you’re having problems downloading your patterns. This usually happens when someone tries to save their file to an iPhone or iPad. These devices make it difficult to find the files. There are articles online that explain how to download files to these devices, or this video might help: https://youtu.be/vR-z7cy7snk
If this might be causing your problems, please click on the download link again, and follow the instructions found online to find your files. I reset the link so it should work now.
If this isn’t what’s causing your download problem, please let me know.

Hej, Jeg er ked af, at du har problemer med at downloade dine mønstre. Dette sker normalt, når nogen forsøger at gemme deres fil på en iPhone eller iPad. Disse enheder gør det svært at finde filerne.

Hvis dette kan være årsag til dine problemer, skal du klikke på downloadlinket igen og følge instruktionerne, der findes online for at finde dine filer. Jeg nulstillede linket, så det burde virke nu.

Jonni, I love your sculptures and recipes for the different sculpting mediums. I am going to purchase some of your patterns in the very near future. I was just wondering if you have created an entire baby giraffe, instead of just the neck & head? I would be very interested in purchasing that pattern, if you make it.
Hi Kathleen. I don’t a baby giraffe pattern, but it has been on my to-do list for a long time. Our friend Isis made a baby giraffe from scratch and it’s adorable. To sculpt one yourself, you can make an interior pattern using the tips in this video. If you do make one, please come back to the Daily Sculptors page and show it off. We would love to see how it comes out!
Is there a Polar Bear pattern, whale pattern
There’s a black bear, but no polar bear. And I don’t have a whale pattern yet, although our friend Basil showed us how he made his wonderful whale family, and one of the first projects I ever made for this blog was a baby sperm whale wall hanging. I wouldn’t make it the same way as I did back then, but it was a fun project. 🙂
Hi I don’t do pay pay would love to order baby elephant whole body and baby elephant head. Your work is amazing and have a grandchild coming in October and want to surprise my daughter
Hi Barbara. The order form will take a debit or credit card. I think the two elephants would be adorable in a nursery!
I watched your baby elephant video and love your work.
Is there a Basset Hound ‘pattern’ anywhere??
Hi David. There is a small pattern for a Basset hound in my book Make Tiny Paper Mache Dogs. If you’d like to make a hound that’s bigger, watch this video for some ideas for designing a pattern of your own.
I stumbled upon your youtube video a couple of days ago. WOW! I am new to polymer clay and “accidentally” watched a video you put out. I am so inspired by you. I wish I would have found your site years ago. I just bought some of your patterns and hopefully I won’t need to bother you with questions. I can’t wait to get started.
Hi Lila. I don’t mind being “bothered” with questions. I like questions. 🙂
I hope you enjoy creating your sculptures. Let us know how they turn out!
Hi Jonni. I was just trying to find the patterns/tutorials I bought from you. I cannot find them. Is it possible for you to retrieve the items I bought from you?
Hi Lila. I just now resent the three emails with your download links to your email address. If you don’t see them right away, please check your promotions folder. And have fun!! 🙂
