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.
