New Paper Mache Dragon-assembly!

By Danmonsterman @danmonsterman
This is where the fun really begins for me.   I have all the paper mache pieces I need and I can just start putting them together.

As you can see, I chose the larger, more elongated paper mache ball for the body.  I cut a hole in the bottom and inserted the tail.   I continually check the dragon against the nest.

I get an idea for where the right leg will need to be.  I cut a hole in the paper mache body.   I always try to make the hole slightly smaller than the appendage I insert.   Paper mache will give a bit as I push the leg in and the fit will be tight.

This is how the dragon will stand on the nest.

Here is a look from behind.   I'll have another post soon.   Thanks for stopping by.
Oh, by the way, I was accepted for a second round of the "Storefronts Project".   So I'll get to have another display somewhere in the Pioneer Square or International District of Seattle.   I hope to finish this project for that display.
