I want to try to use the plastic lanyard string but i think I may need a lot.
How much wire (in feet long) did you use?
gus_sg (author)  EdgeC3 years ago
You can use whatever length available from 2 to 4 feet and you need at least about 15 lengths.
I usually stripped a 2m long printer cable for a dragon with just some left over. Btw a printer cable has 25 wires I think.
You need not worry about the length as you can add more wire as you work your way from the head to the body. As the body becomes fatter you add wire and towards the tail - you cut them off gradually to achieve a tapered tail.
Good luck.

Wingspan = 10'"
Nose to tail = 8"
Height = 3"
cool, definitely need to try this out sometime:)

I have added the step by step for making the dragon. the first part is just creating the head of the dragon. I am not sure if it is easy to photos. just let me know if you need help.

I will put more photos for the 2nd part - which will be the horns, bodym tail and spinal fins.

The four legs and the wings.... I think I will put up something simpler for those who want to start with something simple .... like an ant.

Oh, yeah! Please show us how you did it! I want one!!!
gus_sg (author) 3 years ago
i am working on the step-by-step.i will put it up asap ... it is kind of like combining braiding pony tail with macrame, fishing rig knots, etc.
I put up another picture - hopefully it is larger and clearer so that you can see the way how the knots are done ... cheers.
