Get a fast start on your next paper mache project or hand-made gift with Jonni’s easy downloadable patterns for masks, animal sculptures and faux trophy mounts. The patterns help you create a beautiful work of art, even if you’ve never sculpted anything before.
I’ve been working on another faux taxidermy trophy mount. This time it’s a Bongo – a rare African antelope with some nice stripes and spots. He isn’t quite done – The armature is done (that’s what you’ll see me build in the video) and I’ve just now started adding heavy brown paper over the armature. In the next video we all get to see how he turns out. I have some ideas about how I’ll finish him, and I hope it works as well as I think it will.
As you can see from the photo, courtesy of Wikipedia, these antelope have some very nice patterns on their faces, and every individual antelope seems to be just a little bit different.
