The Dude dragon

Recommended Posts

Some AWSOME dragons where presented on the forum, so I wanted to try my hands at one (in other words - got jealous...). In addition, the wife asked for a buissiness cards holder. So the plan was a fierce dragon, with a long sneak like body, coiled to form a cavity for the cards.

Never made dragon scales, so I made a scrap test piece. Then made the head (also a first). When a kid thought it was a donkey, I realized change of plan was in order. The test piece was recovered, welded to the head, and a more "lay back" dragon emerged.

It does hold cards - on it's feet, against it's calves. However, the wife sais "it's too nice to take to the office". Whatever that means...

Great *and* useful.  I've often done fold forming on sheet metal for the wings of dragons, copper sheet looks really good and can be flame coloured.

That's very well done!  Love the little wings! 

That dragon twist is a lot of fun. Next one I'll use a narrow jawed crescent wrench rather than the huge Coe's monkey wrench that is my go to twisting tool.
