Paper Mache White Tail Deer

The deer is finished!


Lina Bunnell's deer sculpture.This delightful white-tailed deer was made by Linda Bunnell, the author of this guest post. She used a drawing she found online to create her own pattern for the deer. Her use of Epoxy Sculp for the fine details of the face and to strengthen the antlers was a good choice, and it worked really well for this sculpture. Thank you, Linda, for showing us how it was made!


How to Make a White-Tailed Buck with Paper Mache

I started my deer with a paper pattern, then made my wire frame.

Then I added aluminum foil, glued in place & taped with masking tape.

I covered the body with paper mache clay. I then bent wire for antlers & covered them with JB Weld putty or Apoxie Sculpt, which is what I liked best.
