Made by Pauline Seddon
She is made from your giraffe pattern, with one or two minor alterations. She now resides in my daughter’s new summerhouse. Hope you like her, as I loved making her. I have purchased your hare pattern for my next project.
Thanks for your fantastic patterns and instructions. Couldn’t have done it without them.
The following notes and photos explain how I managed to hang the sculpture from the wall.
Step 1: Firstly I made a picture frame from wood and hardboard.
Step 2: I then positioned the sculpture onto the picture frame and marked/outlined the location of the giraffe onto the backboard of the picture frame.
Step 3: I drilled 3x fixing holes into the backboard of the picture frame.
Step 4: I attached a piece of hardboard with glue and tape to the base of the giraffes neck and once dried, I drilled three holes in alignment to the pre -drilled holes in the picture frame. Note: The holes in the base of the giraffes neck need to be large enough for the heads of the butterfly cavity fixings.
Once the head was painted and ready for mounting, I screwed in the butterfly clips (as pictured below) through the back of the backboard of the picture frame and into the base of the sculpture.
Step 5: These clips spring open once screwed into the base of the sculpture and hold it securely to the picture frame.
