My first paper mache project since my kids (now in their late 50s) did project using light bulbs and balloons. A bucket list projects. Loved working with your pattern Jonni. My favorite part is her mouth and the curves from the pattern. I’m really glad I did this and maybe the baby elephant wouldn’t be too bad. I have enough paper saved to do the project. As a beginner. the hardest part was ordering things online and not knowing what they were, such as dry wall compound. Had to order that twice. Your videos were not only very helpful, but totally interesting. When ever someone talks about Queen Nefertiti, they always mention her long neck, so my giraffe had no choice. Thanks.

Thank you all for the encouragement.
I have ordered the elephant pattern but do not have large cardboard so will have to get plywood. Also might have to get a jig saw. (or look to see if I still have one). Again, thanks
Hi Vicki. If you’d rather use cardboard, furniture and appliance stores are often have large cartons that they’d love to give away. I hope we get to see your elephant when it’s done! 🙂
Wow great first project!
This turned out really well.
I know what you mean about ordering stuff though. Here is the UK i have no idea what dry wall compound is….unless it is what we call polyfilla?
I don’t want to be ordering from the USA because the postage is horrendous.
Can’t wait to see your next creation.
to see what joint compound is called in different countries. It looks like in UK it is called “joint filler.”
And, no, you wouldn’t want to pay postage! It cost me $75 to send a small elephant (4 pounds) to UK, so I can’t imagine a box of that stuff.
Good luck. I do like this project.
Thank you so much that is a great help!
Now I know what to get for the next project.
Lion next and then a giraffe – or maybe the other way round – don’t know yet!
Bow to the queen, and lovely she is. She looks right at home in the plants. Always happy to see giraffes. Thanks.
