Finished size: Finished size: About 4.5” (11.5 cm) high. If you need a bigger bunny, just print the pattern in a larger size.
- Print the pattern on copy paper or full-sheet labels.
- Attach the pattern pieces to cardboard.
- Put the pieces together to form the armature for your bunny.
- Add rounded shapes with crumpled foil and hot glue. The instructions show you how.
- Cover the armature with a very thin layer of Apoxie Sculpt, like I did, or use either traditional paper strips and paste or the air dry clay recipe that you can find in the Art Library on this site.
- Paint him with acrylic paint.
I painted my bunny with chalk paint to give him a nice soft coat, but any acrylic paint will work just fine.
I used one pound of Apoxie Sculpt to make the bunny sculpture, and there was enough left over to make the Baby Unicorn, too.
Click here if you’d like to make both the unicorn and the bunny and save $5 for the two-pattern set.
Watch the video for an easy way to create the bunny’s big black eyes:
To make this little rabbit sculpture you will need:
- A small piece of corrugated cardboard, and some light card stock cut from a cereal box
- Glue stick
- A printer
- Bendable wire. 10 gauge armature wire or any wire that can be bent into the shapes on the pattern.
- Aluminum foil
- Glue gun
- Small piece of tape
- Latex or Nitrile gloves if you’re using Apoxie Sculpt.
- Sculpting tools (or find anything that works that you already have around the house.)
- Apoxie Sculpt or air dry clay. (You can find my air dry clay recipe in the Paper Mache Art Library).
- Acrylic Paint (I used chalk paint from Walmart, but you can use any acrylic paint.)
- Stencil brush (a cheap one is best)
- Sandpaper (optional)
- Matte acrylic varnish
