If you are one of my favorite peoples (thank you for always visiting by the way) that come to sit under the old ooak tree often then you know that I'm working on a project for a swap that I'm participating in. The EWWL Halloween Flea Market Follies swap. So many talented folkes in this group!! Check it out when you get some time. NOT YET though...stay here and finish reading and then you can. ^_^
I'm working on the tail this morning since a dragon's scales overlap each other from the bottom to the top. Makes perfect sense too because I'm sure it would be VERY hard to fly if they were the other way around. No aerodynamics at all backwards unless of course it was a backwards flying dragon that is. Wait.....I'm getting way off my subject for today. Like I was saying before my imagination took flight (ohh I made a funny. Get it? Flight...Flying...Dragon?) I'm working on this dragon's tail piece. I decided to use heavy cardstock which I will paint once all the scales are laid down. I thought that perhaps YOU might be interested in just how I'm making the tail piece. I mean just in case you might want to make a dragon for yourself. It would be a fun project for a rainy day....just sayin!!
Once I have the tail the length I need then I'm thinking of running a wire through the middle of all the scales before I glue them together so that I can bend it.
Now back to making scales. I hope you enjoyed this "How To" and can use it for either making paper bookmarks or even for trying to make a dragon of your own. Which ever you choose.....just have FUN!!
Until next time............
