Tiny Paper Mache Chihuahua Pattern
This Chihuahua was the inspiration for my book How to Make Tiny Paper Mache Dogs.
The pattern shows you how to build your wire armature so all the proportions are right from the start. Then you add crumpled foil to fill out the rounded forms – the pattern helps with that, too. Then your sculpture gets a thin layer of paper strips and paste, and it’s finished with acrylic paint and varnish.
Use the pattern along with the videos below to see make your paper mache Chihuahua:
To make your Chihuahua you’ll need:
- Aluminum armature wire (or any light wire that’s easy to bend)
