Paper Mache Giraffe completed!

I have finally finished the giraffe. His name is Nagol and will be displayed in my soon-to-be grandson's room. I love the way he turned out. This has been my biggest project so far which took me a little over 3 weeks to complete. He looks great in the baby's room. :o)

third stage of paper mache giraffe

Here he is now with three layers of paper mache. Hopefully the clay will be applied within the next couple of days. :o)

Paper Mache Giraffe work in progress

While I'm visiting my daughter and waiting for our first grandchild to arrive, I decided to create a paper mache giraffe. He is going to be 6 ft tall and will be displayed in the baby's jungle theme bedroom. Here is the giraffe which was started using a chicken wire sculpture.

Taking a break from doll making.

I haven't been making any new dolls lately. I've been on vacation visiting family and friends along the mid and eastern coast. I am currently with my daughter and her husband awaiting our first grandchild! While I'm here, I'll try making a 6 foot paper mache giraffe. Will try to post pictures of the work in progress. :o) Stay tuned.....
