Update on Stanley the Giraffe....

We started out with a cardboard frame.

Covered it in chicken wire and paper mache.

The full body coat of paint, done last night.

Drew the outline of spots, and started painting.

And this is where he is at this point, 1 to 2 coats of paint on spots, to cover the outlines. Next is a smaller paint brush to do the smaller spots and then the details!! He is looking pretty good!!!


  1. That is looking so fabulous! I want to make one too. You've got all kinds of talents!

  2. LOL thanks Mikey!!
    He has been a challenge, this is the first paper mache animal I have ever made! I can stand under his jaw, and I am 5'7". So he is pretty tall.

  3. Wow, that looks great! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  4. very cool! i think it would look great here in the desert. although I don't know if our horses would agree with me.
