Lion head rug

Made by Edwin Mojica jr

Hi Jonny well I wanted to try something different so I decided to try to attempt to make a lion head rug for my living room I used cardboard aluminum foil and hot glue to form the shape then using masking tape all over I wanted it to be strong so I did two layers of brown paper and wood glue let it dry covered it with aluminum foil then did a layer of paper mache clay your recipe of course. Did one layer then let it dry the eyes I bought online I came up with an idea so I went on line I bought a large cow hide thin and some leather glue what Iam going to do is cut pieces use the leather glue it’s ok if u see the seams because once it’s all covered Iam going to use a hand held flocker and sprinkle faux hair to cover the seams then let that dry a day or two the I will buy two large cow hides thin there really cheap I will put them together cut out the shape of the lion then make claws. And tail add padding underneath then I will take a airbrush and spray it all one color then spray on all the details. To give it the look and I bought a used Coat that has long hair I will use for the main also I notice that I’f I put lights in the head the eyes glow like a amber color so I might do that just for fun with a remote still in the beginning stages so anything is possible at this point this is going to be my first one so really hoping it comes out fingers crossed’
