LOL, Melody, you should try and make your own, it's good fun.

The mane is black crepe wool, the kind you use for doll hair. It's just glued on and trimmed down.

As for a name, I haven't thought of a name yet. Dave usually names all my dragons. But I'm open to suggestions.

How about Rhiannon, a woman of the otherworld in Celtic legend.
The maker of birds, I believe. She always has birds flying around her. A very noble character.

Give me time, maybe I can think of something else.

I think I will be trying something like this... or maybe making something else with the same technique.... Wouldn't a Centaur be interesting like that? (no, i don't think i would be confident enough to make a human face, let alone the whole thing, maybe something smaller.)

A centaur would be awesome, I've done pegasus fabric sculptures before and they work quite well, too. I'll have to try and demo one of those someday.

WOW! Knock me over with a feather! Amy, I read through this entire thread. Whew! This is a knockout. What a talent you are!

PS: I'd be very interested in a Pegasus demo.

Talking FANTASTIC!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful demo you've given! I love this guy! I've been wanting to do some kind of sculpture, as I've never done it before... he's incredible! I so appreciate all the time and effort put into this, and into making sure we understand how you created him. AND.... I will have to buy some Magic Sculp now..... why is it I get the most creative when I've so much else to do?!?!?

Very inspiring, and I agree... please do a tutorial of a pegasus.

I just rated your post Amy

I too sew, so mostly I just looked at your drawing and progress. You sure did a great job explaining.
Congratulations! well done.
I rated this post the best it would allow, which is 5.

Re: Dragon Fabric Sculpture Demo

Wow...just wow! I have been fiddling around with a couple of dragon designs with fabric and I have been completely discouraged with the way they were turning out. When I saw this guy, my jaw DROPPED!!

He's amazing and gorgeous and your instructions are just wonderful! Thank you so much for all of your help and advice in this thread! I really want to go out and try this now!

Thanks indimew!

Wow, this is a blast from the past. I hadn't seen this thread pop up in AGES.
