In the Designer's Words: "I found this cute paper mache cat and thought it would look great on my coffee table. I used my cats as a guide (and looked at how to do cat eyes on the internet) and had my dad give me some painting pointers. This was my first painting project where it was supposed to actually look like something! I painted my initials and the date on the paws of the cat so that I would remember when I had did it.  It was a little challenging because I hadn't painted before but it was fun!  I think it looks cute!"

I love the acrylic colours used here. One of my cats is charcoal grey but the other one kinda looks like this paper mache. I cannot wait to try making this.

This purrfect papier mache craft has me so inspired to craft right meow! I wish that this tutorial was for a dog, but life is ruff.

JoAnn had paper mache dogs too! I almost bought one for a friend!

That's awesome, I may have to get one and paint it to look like my dog!
