Jack Rabbit

Made by Annie

This is the second sculpture I’ve made from Jonni’s patterns and it was so much fun! The little tiny pattern pieces that made up this head were a lot more fiddly to work with than the pig head I made first, but well worth it in the end! Jonni’s instructions are generally very clear and the accompanying YouTube videos are essential.

The only thing I questioned was her instruction to cover the card stock in clear tape before cutting and piecing it all together (to prevent the paper mache paste from making it soggy), but then she recommends covering the completed form with masking tape as well, which made the clear tape seem ultimately unnecessary. I still followed her instructions though and did both tape types and it certainly didn’t hurt.

  1. Hi Annie. You did a fantastic job with your jack rabbit. I love the way you painted it. Thanks so much for letting us see how it came out.

    I may have been overly cautious with the two types of tape, but this is one of only four patterns that are printed directly on thin card stock, and I was really worried about warping. It’s possible that the masking tape alone would have been enough protection – but I figured it’s better to be safe than sorry. And I agree about the size of the pieces on this one. It’s the most difficult pattern I sell because of those small pieces around the nose. You managed to complete it beautifully, though!

    One of these days I might redesign this pattern using the methods that I use now – with bigger pieces, no tabs and heavier cardboard. Someday…. 🙂
