Made by Joy
This is a sculpture I made in late 2018 -early 2019 using Jonni’s Piglet pattern. My dad has a pig collection and I thought he needed a unique piece to hang on the wall. I tried uploading the photo at that time and had difficulty.
The pattern was a bit challenging but Jonni’s videos made it go together easily. I made a few changes in that I covered the cardboard sculpture with a couple layers of strip mache, making sure to use smaller widths so the paper would lie flat. I then covered the entire sculpture with a homemade gesso and lightly sanded with a damp sponge. This was for my Dad’s birthday and in my haste to get it completed, I neglected to bend the ears a bit downward but he loved it anyway.
