New Paper Mache Dragon- Finished!

By Danmonsterman @danmonsterman
Okay, if I wait until I have the perfect photos this dragon will never get shown.  So I'm going to force myself to stop taking photos and show you what I have.   I think these photos are all right, but as any self-respecting artist will tell you, photos simply don't capture the subtlety in the color.   Trust me, this dragon is really beautiful in person.  Since the nest is made of driftwood this dragon would live by the sea.   So I wanted her to be sea greens and blues.   Here she is.

Yes, here is my cheesy Photoshop effort to create her spot by the water.
I made the first post about this dragon on January 29.  This took some time and effort, no doubt about it.  For those of you who followed the build, thanks for being patient.
Next up, I'll show you how to build a laughing buddha.

Great work! I'm in awe! May I ask do you only use glue and cloth or do you also use the flour mixture as well? Thanks!
