Everyone loves wolves! That’s one of the reasons why this is one of the most popular patterns on this site.
After printing the pattern, you just cut it out of cardboard and tape it together. The pattern creates all the shapes of your wolf’s face for you. Then cover it with one layer of paper mache to create a strong, yet lightweight mask or wall sculpture.
The video below shows you how the mask shown above was painted. You could make your own wolf black instead of gray – or paint it white.
Even better, one in each color for beautiful matched set.
Finished size: About 11.5 inches (29 cm) high, 9.5 inches (23 cm) wide and 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) deep.
To make the wolf mask you will need:
- Standard letter size paper (8.5” x 11”) or A4 paper (210 × 297 mm)
- A sheet of cardboard
- Glue stick
- Straight edge
- Table knife
- Box cutter or craft knife
- Paper strips and paste, or paper mache clay
- Acrylic gesso, paint and varnish
