This is a downloadable PDF Pattern with full illustrated instructions: You’ll be able to download your pattern right after you order. You’ll also receive an email with the download link, and a separate receipt. The emails may take a few minutes to arrive. If you don’t see them, be sure to check your spam or promotions folder.
If you need a bigger bunny, just print the pattern in a larger size.
The pattern comes with complete instructions for creating your bunny’s armature with cardboard and crumpled foil. When the armature is ready, you cover it with a very thin layer of Apoxie Sculpt, like I did. Other options are to use traditional paper strips or the air dry clay recipe that you can find in the Art Library on this site.
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 sculptures and save $5 for the two-pattern set.
The bunny sculpture shown here was painted with chalk paint to give him a nice soft coat, but any acrylic paint will work just fine.
Watch the video for an easy way to create the bunny’s big black eyes:
To make this 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
