Mrs. Whiskers

Made by Connie Kulow

Mrs. Whiskers was made from plastic grocery bags, masking tape, straws for some detail, acrylic paint, fishing wire for whiskers, and varnish. She is currently traveling to Michigan to reside with my sister. Originally, I wanted a darker ragdoll look, but paint supplies are limited to buy and to blend. I like her eyes and nonchalant attitude.

  1. I love your Mrs. Whiskers. You did a wonderful job making her become alive. It’s always so amazing when you can put together newspaper and tape and after each step they do become so real you actually start talking to them and they of course talk back. 🙂

    • Thank you! Paper mache just brings out the imagination in all of us! And yes, of course they talk back to us! In fact, Mrs. Whiskers arrived in Michigan at my sister’s house and has already stolen her other cat’s toys!

  2. I just love Mrs whiskers I think she is beautiful I haven’t tried paper mache before and I have just started sticking on the paper strips onto my cat frame. I am not very good at sending emails as I am new to computers etc but it’s all about practice as they say. I love Jonnis website and I love having discovered it by accident .love you all

    • Thank you Margaret! You will so enjoy making paper mache animals and characters. I watched Jonni’s videos over and over and over and still continue to watch them! Have fun!!

  3. Connie, a great cat. Your sister ought to be happy, and the whiskers are great.

    It looks like you have trained Bart and Leroy to behave themselves. Great work.

    • Thanks Rex. She is off to the frozen tundra of Michigan. Honestly though, I think Leroy is the suspicious one and Bart tolerates the cats and dogs. I’m ready to start working on my cow head now. I think Leroy just rolled his eyes.

  4. Connie, I love everything you do, and your style is so distinctive, I can pick out your work from a mile away.

    • Thank you! I think Jonni would hyperventilate if she watched me make them though! lol I use my fingers to put the clay on the animals instead of using a brush or scraper. I like being able to add that “personal touch” to my animals.
