Absolutely love the giraffe pattern you created Jonni. This is my interpretation of him. I went with a tall one, as you can see. Used a tomato cage to give the additional height and perfect size to create what I wanted. I used the wood glue paper mache method you teach and its my favorite I must say. A little acrylic paint and some false eye lashes and a couple of grass skirts cut down to make the mane and here he is.

Just a beautiful giraffe. Great paint job too! Congrats!
I am very pleased with the outcome and my little girl Emily decided she wanted to share in the moment by getting in the picture. I agree its a nice way of showing off the actual scale of it. Plus, Emily is so cute always glad to let her make her appearance and share her too. : )
Love, love, ?? The pretty face. Wonderful job!
Thank you!!! My husband walked into the room and said that really looks like a giraffe. Before painting it he kept calling it a camel. hahaha.. not sure why but glad the paint helped make it look like what it actually is.
Never stop making them pls!
I might do one the size of the pattern to have one to sit on a shelf. This one my husband likes to pull over to the window to stare out at people walking by. haha Fun with the giraffe and the neighbors. He is considering having it look over the fence next. Oh boy!
Hahaha that would be a very sight…
Absolutely would. Haha
Love it! You did a great job on the painting of this big fella! Also love the little doggie displaying just how large the giraffe is!
