New Paper Mache Dragon- Cool Spine

By Danmonsterman @danmonsterman
Hi again,
I wanted an elaborate spine on this dragon.   It's a lot of work, but well worth it.   Again, no more paper mache.  I'm fashioning details with paper (mostly phone book paper) and masking tape. 
I twisted paper around pieces of small gauge wire.  I tapered them to a point and wrapped with masking tape.  You've seen me do this a million times.   I started at the head and attached the longest spines.

I continued adding the spines down the back....all the way down the tail.

Next, I dipped pieces of cloth into the glue and draped it over the spines from top to bottom.   I cut off the excess cloth while it was wet.   I know that this looks easy, but it is actually quite challenging.

After the cloth dried (overnight) I used small scissors to trim between the spines.

Next time we'll finish the head.
See you soon!
