Paper Mache Wolf Mask Pattern
Easy Pattern for a Paper Mache Wolf Mask
This pattern is a digital download. To create your wolf mask you begin with cardboard and paper mache. Then it comes to life with your creativity and a coat of acrylic paint.
This mask could be worn with the addition of an elastic strap, or you can display it on your wall.
You can use either traditional paper strips and paste over your cardboard mask, like you’ll see in the video below, or you can cover it with Jonni’s paper mache clay recipe (find the recipe in the Art Library. The link is at the top of the page).
You can paint your paper mache wolf mask any way you like. There’s a video below that shows you how the mask shown here was painted.
Finished size: About 11.5 inches (29 cm) high, 9.5 inches (23 cm) wide and 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) deep.
