Thanks to everyone who sent in photos of their paper mache cats. If you would like your own cat to be included in this gallery, send me the photos and I’ll add them. They can be cats you made following the paper mache cat videos I made, or they can be cats you made following another method. If you already posted your own cat as a comment on another page and you’d like the photo to be included in this gallery, just let me know. (Copyright laws don’t allow me to move your photos and comments without permission – or at least that’s what I’ve been told.)
Click on the thumbnail images to see them larger. Since I haven’t figured out how to make comments show up in the lightbox, see the artists’ comments about their cats below. (If you know how to get the comments in the lightbox with the pictures, where they belong, please let me know).
Joanne Gennarella said: “The snow leopard was reworked from my original one sent to you when I did her with the [Monique Robert] method of paper mache. This time I went over snow leopard with paper mache clay for a more realistic fur look. For calico kitty – I used my usual armature of wire, paper, and tape, over which I layered paper mache clay. This cat was inspired by Jonni’s class tutorial of her pretty cat. Good job Jonni with the class, let’s have some more.”
Vivian Dominguez said: “I saw your post and wanted to submit my cat! It’s not done using your method. This cat was made with newspaper, masking tape, glue, yarn, misc fabric, toothpicks, and fishing wire. The head, ears, limbs and paws all move with fishing wire and the eyes will be animated on later. I made the cat for a webseries in the works…you can learn a bit more about it here: http://squirrelkingthemovie.blogspot.com/p/series-synopsis.html . ”
