I first found out about this book from Jonni’s website. Her book is everything I expected and more! She gives clear, precise directions, lots of pictures, and really walks you through everything thoroughly. Whether you are a beginner who has never done anything artistic, or an experienced artist, this book will give you lots of inspiration AND a neato recipe for Jonni’s paper mache clay! Try it! You’ll like it!
Amazon Reader Review
If you’ve always wanted to create life-like animal sculptures, but you thought it would be “too hard” or “too expensive,” you’re in for a very pleasant surprise. This book contains step-by-step instructions and over 250 photos to guide you through the enjoyable process of making realistic animal sculptures in a whole new way.
Jonni Good’s easy techniques help you create stunning wildlife art without the mess usually associated with papier mache, and the patterns included in each chapter guarantee that your sculptures will be perfectly shaped and proportioned from the very start.
Paper mache clay takes about 5 minutes to make, using inexpensive ingredients, and applying it to your form is as easy as frosting a cake. It goes on smooth and dries hard and strong. It’s easy to form life-like details like eyes and noses, fur and scales. Then finish your sculptures with acrylic paints to bring them to life. Jonni even shows you how to create your own patterns from original drawings or photos, so you can use her techniques to sculpt any animal you like.
Creating life-like animal sculptures has never been so easy, or so much fun!
