Today we have a guest post from Marjo Bruijnes, who used several unique methods to create a paper mache ermine. She also runs an animal shelter, and I hope you’ll visit her site, if just to see the beautiful animals in her care.
Be sure to click on the first image below, to see how the ermine was made. The text will appear below the full-sized images.
How to Make a Paper Mache Ermine
© 2015 Marjo Bruijnes
I am Marjo Bruijnes. I was born in the Netherlands and live now for ten years in Hungary. I love animals in every way, to have them, to help them and to be inspired by them for creative art. I have a shelter for abused animals. I paint animals and I really love to make animals in paper mache. So I decided to make an ermine in his winter fur. These little creatures live on my farm and they are so cute.
A little bit more about me: I like to paint and just started with making animals from paper mache. I have for ten years now an animal shelter for abused animals. There are living here over fifty animals I rescued. Because it is very difficult to get enough donations, I want to start workshops in painting and paper mache. The money will benefit the animals. The people who will come here for a workshop will have a wonderful time and help the animals. I hope to here from you.
If you would like to help support my shelter with donations or virtual adoptions, you can visit my website. The name of my shelter: “De Schutskooi”
