My lion . I used clear glass beads for the eyes ( painted from the back ) . The mane is made from twine ( untwisted ) . The paper mache was made from used white printer paper on a cardboard frame . Acrylic paint with leather whiskers .

Just thought I’d add that your lion is my favorite of all the lions posted. Just love him!!!
Darn! I already closed up my lion’s head, and I so wish I’d seen your post before I did so. Your lion’s eyes look fantastic! Total regret that I didn’t make mine in the same way. Thanks for sharing!!
I really like the mane. Is that sisal twine that you partially unwound? great job! I love him.
What a great Lions head you’ve made. Love the crazy look in it’s eyes.
