Get a fast start on your next paper mache project or hand-made gift with Jonni’s easy downloadable patterns for masks, animal sculptures and faux trophy mounts. The patterns help you create a beautiful work of art, even if you’ve never sculpted anything before.
In this video, I introduce you to a spotted piglet. He’s the fourth project in my upcoming book Make Animal Sculptures with Paper Mache Clay.
In case you’re wondering, the term “KuneKune” refers to a rare breed of miniature pigs from New Zealand.
I took the dogs out to run on Mt. Emily this morning, and I discovered that I’m even more out of shape than I realized. I broke my toe a few months ago, and it slowed me down for quite a while. At my age, a month of being really, really lazy can make muscle tone disappear fast. I suppose I’m lucky that the dogs are as out of shape as I am, so it wasn’t hard to keep up with them.
When I got back I worked on my new email notification system – you can sign up using the form over there on the right of this page. Don’t miss out on a single video or tutorial.
Now I’m off to the hardware store, my favorite place for art supplies. Today I need to find some heavy wire or thin metal rods to use in the series of large horses I plan to make in the next few months. Wandering around a hardware store makes me happy – so many weird and wonderful things in there, and nice people, too. I hope your day has something fun to look forward to, as well.
