If you’ve noticed things have been quiet for a while in this news section, its partly because sculpting 2000 scales takes a bit of time!
The 4-foot Dragon head for next term’s workshops has gone from a simple mock up through to finished sculpture ready for moulding.
Shown above is the head and neck in stages of sculptural development, and when cast will have mechanics to make its eyelids blink, nostrils sniff and ears twitch in addition to it gurgling smoke and spitting 5-foot jets of fire from its mouth!
