Paint your fox with Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, White and Black.

This is an easy pattern, with just 16 pieces. You can create a helmet-style mask, like the one shown above, or use the special pieces included in the pattern to put a flat back on the fox. That lets you hang your fox on the wall.

Finished size: Finished size: About 9.5 inches (24.13 cm) high, 8.5 inches (20.32 cm) wide and 12 inches (30.48 cm) deep (when used as a helmet mask).

  1. One more question: Is the pattern meant to be printed onto letter-size paper (i.e. 8.5×11)? I did that, and then noticed that the pattern as it appears on my computer is larger by about two inches, and it seems that I’m viewing it at full-size (i.e. not enlarged or zoomed in). I want to make sure I’m using pieces that will be the right size for my face!

    Thanks a bunch,

    • HI Myla. The pattern is made to fit onto standard 8.5 x 11 paper. If you printed it full size (100%), your pattern is printed correctly. It’s possible that your computer monitor is enlarging the PDF on screen and calling it 100%, when it’s really showing it in a slightly larger size. That happens on my monitor all the time.

  2. Hi Jonni – Thanks so much for this amazing website! I need to make a mouse mask with large ears, and I’m thinking the fox mask with work for most of it, with me going rogue when it comes to the ears. Two questions:

    In the above list of things I’ll need, plaster of paris is mentioned, but your video doesn’t mention that. What’s the plaster of paris for?

    Do you have any suggestions for making big mouse ears, in terms of attachment points or sizing?

    Thanks again,

    • Hi Myla – thank you so much for mentioning that plaster was on the list for the fox. That was only on the list because I copied and pasted the list from another project, and wasn’t paying attention! There is no plaster of Paris required for the fox. I just now edited that page so I won’t be confusing any more people. 🙁

      The new mouse ears can be put on in the same place as the fox ears, or you could play with the placement and put them where they look best. If possible, print pieces 7 and 8, the ears, on two pieces of paper. Then, before putting them on cardboard, cut them out and tape them together.That will make it obvious where the fox ears need to be rounded out – they will end up using more cardboard. Untape the old ears and put them on a new piece of paper, or on cardboard, and redraw the rounded ears.

      I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
