Jonni’s Christmas Gift to Readers of UltimatePaperMache.com


Pegasus Drawing
I received an email yesterday from someone who found one of my very old pen and ink drawings in an antique shop (no old-lady jokes, please!). That reminded me of Pegasus. I sold this drawing at the Pike Place Market in Seattle, a very, very long time ago. I did a search on my computer, found an old photo of the original drawing, and cleaned up the image with a PhotoShop filter because the old photo was a little fuzzy.

Since it’s almost Christmas (and the Winter Solstice, another good excuse for giving stuff away, was yesterday), I thought I’d share Pegasus with you as a printable PDF file that you can download by clicking on the link down below. This Pegasus is not paper mache, obviously, but he would make a great sculpture. I can imagine him hanging from the ceiling like the flying pig I gave to my daughter (but don’t tell Pegasus I compared him to a pig – I don’t think he’d like that!).

If you use this drawing as a model for a sculpture, I hope you’ll come back and show him off here on the site.

I remember enjoying the idea of using a large-breed horse for the model of Pegasus, because they were once used as war horses when soldiers wore heavy armor. And I added the harness and reins because I imagined someone thinking, incorrectly, that Pegasus could be tamed and ridden like an ordinary horse. I think they would have realized their mistake as soon as the great winged beast figured out what the silly human had in mind.

Enjoy. And Merry Christmas!

  1. Jonni, happy holidays to you and your very talented family! I love this drawing! I wanted to let you know that I sent a wish list of two of your books “Make animal sculptures with Paper Mache Clay”, and the other “How to make adorable baby animal dolls”, featured and for sale on Amazon. So excited that I was lucky to get both on Christmas. Sending you sunshine from Ventura, California. Ae

    • Good morning, Ae. I hope you enjoy your new books. When you make some of the projects, I hope you’ll come back to the site and show them off. I’d love to see how they turn out!

  2. Merry Christmas and have a joyful holiday Jonni ! I love your art and your artistic talent is outstanding. Keep up the creativity. Your projects always puts a smile on my face. Thank you for your wonderful posts!
