Step 2: Drawing

Find a skeleton of a stegsaurus and.  Or just look up an skeleton of the dinosaur that you are gone make. Then you can draw ruffly main area of the skeleton. this will become the skeleton of the clay model for stability and strength.

Make sure you always measure the tail so that it is long enough.
Always draw the skeleton of the dinosaur from the side.

You need to enter a wire. This will function as a backbone for your skeleton.
you easily can push the wire trough the cardboard.
If the cardboard pieces are a bit loose just leave them its no problem.

For the legs you do the same thing and connect the legs to the skeleton.

Step 5: Alumium

keep adding foil until the dinosaur is stable and can stand on it self.
After this add some more aluminum foil and then ad some more until it is nice and round.

Step 7: Positioning

When you have fatted up the dinosaur whit oil you can start positioning of the dinosaur. this is very a crucial step. Move the legs and tail and body around until you have a cool position. make sure it is a solid model now that stands stable.  

This will determine the final position of the model. in this phase you can just move everything around and compose of the dinosaur.
