A rhino would look really cool too.
May I recommend another idea if you are doing a full creature? I think doing something like a cheetah, jaguar, or lion would look really wonderful by using this technique. You could get wonderful detail, you could try a new animal, and you could also make it life-size, and not have to scale it down like a 10+ ft tall elephant. I would say doing a creature like a cheetah would be ambitious but by looking at your work, there is no doubt in my mind you wouldn't be able to do it!
Wonderful job! This looks absolutely amazing!
I have been thinking of doing a full sized something. I am quite keen on a rhino at the moment. I say full sized but of course I mean a complete animal just down scaled somewhat.. Thank you for your comments and your faith in my abilities.
Thank you very much for that.
Thanks for those amazing comments. I have been thinking of a complete elephant for some time but always want to move onto something new. One day maybe.

Your work is really masterful. I do love the Ultimate Paper Mache posts and the work Jonni does is fantastic, but you bring your own style to it, and I love it. I need to check out those recipes. I have a 5 gallon drum of some other paste or caulk, but haven't heard of the drywall one. Will you please make a whole bull elephant?

More than happy to be a judge. I would like to judge the outdoor and or workshop categories. Thanx for the opportunity.
Thanx for those comments, much appreciated.
This is so cool! Very nice work, I love stuff like this. Thanks for sharing your process. - seamster
Wow, it's beautiful! This the second awesome papier mache project I've seen today on instructables! I guess such a small amount of linseed oil is safe, but it's good to remember that under certain circumstances it produces enough heat for combustion as it's drying. - Uncle Kudzu
