Colorado-based sculptor and artist Tiffany Miller Russell has created a range of amazing paper sculptures using the moulded paper which has been intricately combined to create unique characteristics of her animal subjects. Watch the demonstration video below to see how the moulded paper is used to create the finished effect with some sculptures taking up to 300 hours to complete. The Colossal website explains a little more about the process.
“To start the sculptural works, the artist first creates an original drawing. She then she cuts and forms found specialty papers by hand to build a three-dimensional collage atop the underlying illustration. “I delight in the unique and unusual,” she shares with Colossal, “and my goal when creating is to communicate with my viewer that excitement. I hope to pass along a little bit of wonder for the world around us.””

Tiffany explains more about her the creation of her awesome wildlife paper sculptures. “The paper sculptures are created with found specialty papers. Minimal altering of color and pattern may be done. A drawing is carefully made, and the papers are cut and formed by hand to create a three dimensional collage. With the exception of small 5x7s that I create in limited editions, all my pieces are one of a kind works of art.”
