Sampson: A. polar bear

Made by Jane Adamo

I almost always start a large mammal with two balloons and a big cereal box. I like to put 3 layers on each balloon and let them dry. I open the cereal box at both ends and shape into a cylinder. Then I tape the dry balloons, one at each end of the box. I cut a profile of the head and legs from corrugated board, tape them on, fill them out with newspaper, and then strip mache.

I can’t pass him without patting him on the head!
