Made by Lori Lovas
I created this bald eagle – my first sculpture since elementary school art class in the early 1980’s – as the centerpiece for an upcoming “American Hero” themed tablescape competition for a local festival. I found Jonni’s videos and website to be invaluable resources throughout the process. Jonni’s fantastic paper mache clay recipe allowed me to create the texture I desired for the eagle’s head and body. I used Apoxie Sculpt for the fine details: eyes, beak, and talons.

Very well done. It even looks good just in white! Great job. You ought to be very proud of yourself.
Thank you so much!
Your eagle is amazing. I love the details, especially his expression!
Thank you for your kind words, Elena!
Wow! I can’t believe that is your first sculpture. The feather texture is great and the eagle’s expression is wonderful. Great job! I think you should do more paper mâché. You’re a natural.
Thank you for your kind comments. I really enjoyed the process, so this won’t be my last sculpture!
What Jonni said, it’s awesome!
Thank you, Carol!
Lori, the texture on your Eagle is very well done, but the first thing I see is that determined expression and those wonderful eyes. You gave him such a strong personality that I can’t imagine how you could not win that competition. Good luck!
Thank you so much, Jonni!
