With the rough shape of the head carved out, we then started on the detail work.

We used a Dremel with various small cutting burs to carve the scales and other details. We also sanded the teeth down nice and smooth, as well as clean up any rough edges.

Once the details were carved, we painted it with acrylic paint, and covered it with antiquing glaze at the very end to give it a more aged look.

The eyes from the kaleidoscope were held in place with a couple dabs of hot glue, and the speaker and red LEDs were positioned and then held in place with hot glue as well.

I didn't get any photos of the mounting of the thunder globe in the mouth, but the globe and it's accompanying electronics were held in place with a couple of zip ties that were screwed into the head to hold it steady.
