Step 3: Face

The face is the part of the dragon that gives it the personality so take lots of time making it right. The eyes can sometimes be hard to get right because they are small and you need to make two that look the same. If you don't want to deal with making eyes you can get around it with using glass seed beads. But back to making eyes, the first thing is to get small pieces of white and smaller pieces of black. The best way to do this is to roll out black and white and then use the tissue blade to cut it. Roll these pieces into balls and squish them together. You can make eyes with different colors or inverse them. Lightly place them in the head to find where they will go. The next thing is to make the eyebrows. Make two small cylinders and tapper the ends. Place these above the eyes. Mess around with them for a while because they give your dragon more emotion. The next feature in this step is to make the nose. This is very simple to do, just use a tooth pick to make two holes. The mouth is the last thing to do in this step. Simply roll a tooth pick across the front of the head to form a groove. Add any features like teeth or tongues.
<p>Adorable! Nicely done. I really liked to see the other dragons you had made. Keep up the great work!</p>
You put a lot of thought into making this instructable, &amp; pix are good too. A lot of work went into your 'simple' instructions, which are very time-consuming to present as effectively as you have. Yours is very well done. Thank you so much!
3 day weekend coming, will work on making at least one. Great instructions. One thing that worked for me in the past is make eyes, small details bake them. That way no distortions while pushing it into place. Thanks.
I shall make one and I shall name it Smaug.
Ohhhhh, I want one! Well done and thanks for posting.
Very cool! You make it look so easy :D
awww cuteee
They are so cute!
