LOL. Peace,

LOL, I do better with dragon 'armatures' than the actual dragon. I recently made some dragon skin 'texture' stamps. Figure I'll try that and see how they go.

(AHEM. Anyhoo. ..)

It's nice to see your work. Keep going with it all!

Peace,

The armatures are hard for me. They have tools that cut scales. Ive been meaning to get one.
I think for a dragon nice firm clay and a firm armature. so you can add all that detail and not have it moving about. Even sculpting the head first and baking it in stages as you work on the body.

You are right about the baking in stages---it's a Godsend! (Goes GREAT for my Garden Spirits---keeps me from mashing all my leaves and beetles. LOL.)

I just use old paint brushes with the bristles removed and then I sand them down at the angle I want---makes great scales if you don't mind the tedium of it all.

Peace,

Im a stage baker myself! I just like the peace of mind of knowing I dont have to do it twice. Also I scult the head on a module adn cure it.You never know when a big honkin moonie or crack will spoil the face and this way you can start another face where if you sculpt the whole thing and goof your stuck with it!

Good idea!:D Ill try that. This is prebake though right? Some people cut them after cure for a very sharp thin scale.
