Introduction: Dragon Lighter

Flame thrower a day, flame thrower every day.

Step 1: A Simple Lighter


Step 2: Deconstruction of the Lighter

Deconstruct your (empty) lighter as the following images.

Step 3: Deconstruction of the Lighter

Be carefull with the "arises" (is that french word "ressort" in english? i mean the spin one).

You can keep the lighter's rock for fun, but we dont need it for our dragon.

Step 4: Modeling the Lighter Parts.

Fold the metal and expand the "ressort" (the spin things, you know).

Attach parts together like the third and the fourth images.

Step 5: Attaching the Head and Finitions

Attaching the head is a little bit tricky, you have to spin the head in the arises.
Detach the "body" from the "wings" will help a lot.

Then fold the "body" to make the attitude that your dragon will adopt.

Step 6: Fly Little Dragon!

Play hundred hours with your new little dragon!£

I think that this is very creative reusing. I think I will make it for my wee ones, but put a paper mache "dragon skin" on it.

Thank you for the great ible!

It might be worth changing your main image to the same one as the last image. I think it looks a little better.

what do you do with the rest of the lighter??

author
n0ukf (author)dragonjohn74452008-11-19

I think I've seen it sliced up to make antenna wire insulators somewhere.

tiddlydum (author)2008-07-16

author
turnerfromdh (author)tiddlydum2008-09-07

Looks cool, but I think that's a waist of a lighter.

author
mega_swordman (author)PetervG2006-10-29

The correct word is waste, not waist. Also, I beleive what they mean is if the lighter was old. The lighter also doesn't look very expensive.

woot grammar nazis!!!

everybody who just posted beef on his instructable is only displaying their own stupidity. all the interest lies within the form, not the function. it looks like a dragon, and its made from a lighter(fire from a lighter, dragon breaths fire, dragons arent real so why not create a dragon from a fire creating device???) sweet instructable by the way, my sculpture teacher will love this

author
T-K (author)ledzep5672008-07-26

Trust me, dragons are real.

author
flem (author)ledzep5672007-11-19

Right and thanks. Its just a little sculpture without any pretentious. By the way the lighter was used (empty in fact) and his death was without pain. Last things, no, he don't fly or breaths fire but don't let children <7 play whit him.

author
ledzep567 (author)flem2007-11-21

haha yea, I always find these lighters on the side of the road. I would never let a young child play with something this cool lol

author

Cool! Very easy to do, I thought it would actually light up at first or something, but I didn't actually pay attention. Nice job, might do this instead of throwing them away. +1 rating. (added to favorites)-
