Note: The video on this page is part of a long series because it took a long time to make the sculpture and turn it into a mask. If you’d like a much faster start, check out my new wolf mask pattern. You can use the techniques shown in the video series to embellish the mask and add detail, without needing to start from scratch.
And now, back to the original post:
The wolf mask is almost done. This video shows how the fast-setting paper mache is applied to the wolf’s head positive mold , and paper mache clay is added to the mask to give some nice texture to the ruff. I also show how I fixed a few boo boos. If you’d like to check out the book I mention several times in the video, click: “Make Animal Sculptures with Paper Mache Clay.”
