Make a Paper Mache Lop-Eared Bunny

This is how I usually make masks, not sculptures, but I wanted to show you that it is possible to use paper mache over clay.

It’s easy to to get the clay out of a mask after the paper mache is dry. (I show you how to do that in this post.) With a complete sculpture, however, it can be a little more challenging. Fortunately, this little bunny’s shapes are really simple, so that wasn’t a problem this time.

I’ll be using this same method, but with slightly different materials, when I start making outdoor sculptures with the paper cement clay.

Note: If you’d like to use crumpled paper and masking tape to make your bunny, instead of clay, check out this post.
