Aluminum foil Oriental dragon by Reptangle Aluminum foil Oriental dragon by Reptangle
Aluminum foil is an excellent material to sculpt into these athletic Oriental dragons, because it is light in weight and very bendy, just like the dragons.

This is really cool. Do you still use wire armatures for these or is it all just foil?

I finally put them in a glass fronted cabinet. The cats kept getting into them when they were on a shelf.

It is aluminum foil.
The outside is all one piece, but I stuffed extra pieces inside to make it stronger. I also used hot glue on this one to hold the "stuffing" in place.

Yes, but aluminum foil is such a bear to paint... ;p Very cool design. I love the suggestion of muscle even in such a rough-textured medium.

I don't know HOW you get foil to behave that well. It's simply brilliant. My very elderly Uncle Jack used to make aluminum foil animals. When, as a kid, I visited him, I'd stare up at the shelf which he kept them on, wishing he would let me have one. But I was far too young and they were far too cool. When I first saw yours, I got a flood of pleasant memories regarding him and his foil animals.

Thanks so much for sharing yours!!!
