A few tips for a great post:
These tips will help you create a great post that can be found with the search bar on this site – and by Google. You may need to type in a few more words than you intended to, but it will help your future fans find your post. 🙂
- First, use a title that tells people what your project really is. Instead of “My first project,” write something like “My first angry gorilla sculpture.” Then when people search for “gorilla sculpture,” the search feature (and your future fans) will be able to find it.
- If you can, change your image file names from “IMG_4392” to real words that say what the image is about. The post title and image name help our readers (and Google) find your post when they use the search bar. If you can’t change the file name yourself I’ll try to do it myself before the post goes online.
- If you had any challenges while you were making your mask or sculpture, please let us know what they were – and how you managed to overcome them. That will encourage other readers to try making something of their own.
- Why did you make this thing? What inspired you? Is there a cute story behind it that you’re willing to share? Please do! We love stories.
- After your post is approved, be sure to share it with your friends. In fact, go ahead and brag a little, because your work will be featured on one of the largest and most popular paper mache websites on the Internet. 🙂
Important: Any image you post must belong to you. No exceptions! If someone other than you is shown in your photos, be sure to get their permission (and their parent’s permission, if they’re kids) before you share the photo with the world.

hi jonne I can’t seem to send you a photo of my sculpture?
Use this link Margaret. https://www.ultimatepapermache.com/brag
Enjoy making the cat sculpture with my dauthers.
I gave the little one to choose another sculpture to do together.
Btw, can’t upload the photo of our project
Hi Shahar. Your photo did come through, and your post is now online. I’ve been a little slow this week, and that’s why it took so long. 🙂
Hi Ms. Good,
I tried to upload 3 photos and was told file was too large, so I cut out one photo, re-submitted, and twice got “An error prevented the entry for this form submission being saved. Please contact support.” Suggestion?
Hi Michael. How big are your photos? Is it possible to edit them so they’re smaller? The WordPress program has a size limitation, so each file needs to be reasonably small. A good size would be 1200 pixels at 72 dpi. Most modern cameras save photos that are much larger than that, and the system can’t handle them. Try again, with smaller images, and see if it works. If it doesn’t, let me know.
I tried to make a post but it says
“Request Entity Too Large
The requested resource does not allow request data with POST requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.
I’m not sure how to fix this. Any Ideas?
Hi Lily. Someone else got that message today. The system appears to think your files are too large, even though they might not be. Do you happen to know how large your images are?
The smallest one is 3.77mb and the largest is 6.68mb
I made the images smaller and I think it worked! Thanks for the help!
Mine was an Australian Shepherd. It said I submitted it. I don’t know where it is. Do you?
Yes, I got it. The posts aren’t automatic – I have to screen everything to make sure it’s kid-friendly, and there are buttons I have to push. It will be up shortly. You’ll get an email from me as soon as it’s online. 🙂
Ooops, I just sent one also called Australian Shepherd. Not trying to be confusing – just a popular breed.
Nominees this page opened for meeting this time you fixed it.
S o as the holidays were busy hopefully continue on sculpting
In a day or two. Thanks Robert
All great jobs with their art work .
Jonni, if you want to continue to add my paris cat photos to my original post, that would be cool. Thanks again for all you do.
I love your work, I have down loaded many of your patterns and 2 of your books. I have done Art for as long as I can remember I did paper mache when I was very young, but picked it back up a few years ago after seeing one of your YouTube videos I have new seen every one of them. I do a lot of oil painting, and acrylic paintings,
Hi David. I always love seeing your work. Your new lion is great – as I already told you, I love the eyes. They have so much expression. 🙂
Hey Jonni! How about doing a Bulldog mask!? I’m gonna be making a Bulldog Puppet named “Mack” Like the Truck! He’s Ken Worth’s dog! LOL! ( Ken wears a Peterbilt hat, an International T-Shirt & Drives a Freightliner! LOL!
I want to send a sculpture just done, but the page don’t let me submit
Did you get an error message when you used the form? Did you add your email address and write a few words in the text box? the form won’t work if those fields aren’t filled out.
But there might also be a technical issue, so any error message you see would really help me if it needs to be fixed.
I can’t submit either.
Are you getting an error message of any kind? Let me know exactly what happens, and if you filled out all the boxes. If I get enough information I can do some research and try to fix it.
I dont arrive to send my message to you
Hi Jonni – Love, Love your videos.
Thank you so much for the creation of the frog head. I have made a jumbo size of the head.
Would you happen to have a pattern to create a frog body? Please email me so we can discuss terms.
Hi Tricia. I don’t have a pattern for a whole frog, but I did create a post a few years ago that shows how to sculpt a frog from scratch.
We would love to see your jumbo frog, by the way. Do you have a photo that you’d like to share?
Yes. I will email you a picture of my frog head. Another question, you have a YouTube video that shows how to creat 3D art from scratch, such as what programs to use.
Can you please share?
I can’t make a video showing my current process for creating the sculpting patterns, because it’s too haphazard and takes too long. I basically start with a clay sculpture, and then make paper mache copies of it. I cut the copies to make pieces that will, hopefully, create the right shapes. I keep doing it over and over again until all the pieces fit and the shapes are right. About six years ago I used Blender to create the frog, the elephant head, the jackrabbit and the bear. It took just as long as my current process, and it wasn’t as much fun for me, so I stopped using a computer program and now start with a real sculpture instead. If you want to try Blender, there are a lot of YouTube videos that show how to use it.
Thought I’d finally share some of my latest pieces to show you my appreciation for being such a great paper mache advocate and share your wonderful creations online.
I’m a big fan!
Greetings from the Netherlands
Thanks for sharing your work with us, Peter. Your animals are delightful. 🙂
Hi everyone. The technical difficulties we had with the form have now been fixed, so feel free to try it out and show us your latest projects. 🙂
decided to put on my “big girl pants” and try to share a photo of my first sculpture attempt via my iphone. I couldn’t get the image to load just so you know. Of course, I’m not the most savvy tech user. I’ll see if my hubby can help when he gets home.
Yes, someone else just tried to upload a photo and it didn’t work for them either. I’m talking to tech folks now – thanks for your patience!
Hi Pam. The tech guy fixed the form, so you can now go ahead and upload a photo or two, and tell us about your project. Thanks for your patience!
