My friend asked me to make her a paper mache baby mini donkey so I said “can I put a horn on it?” It’s kind of a thing after I made a couple unicorns. A quick search introduced me to the world of the mini-donkey. Do yourself a favor and google “baby mini donkey” it’s a cute overload.
She’s about 3 feet tall with an armature made of 1″ x 2″ pine wood. I did a basic flour paste with white craft paper over the newspaper and masking tape form. A thin layer of air dry clay for the fur and details was time consuming but worth it.
The best part is the gold leaf equine eyes. I used 30mm glass cabochons and after a lot of failed experiments landed on a great repeatable technique.
