SQUEEEEE! They are sooo adorable!! And little baby ones too! How did you make them so tiny and cute without your fingers cramping up and falling off? I love the hatching egg.

Now you just need some teeny tiny little gold coins and stuff. :p The face on the big one is so beautiful and serene. Ah! You need to bug your friends with the other ones to get some pictures for you! Either that or make some more. :D

I can't make it come to life, Lauren... LOL... I can make one like it for you, if you want, though.
I would LOVE that!

Okay, uh, if nolu isn't going to take you up on this offer, I will!
Okay, the money is yours when I have a real live baby dragon in my hands :D

The teensiest tiniest ones are just rolling scraps across the table until they're the right size, and pressing them together gently or with toothpicks. Trial and error, basically, but the toothpicks help. I have no idea how they came out cute, lol. The normal sized babies are easier to make, and if something goes wrong you just make dragon pancakes and start all over. :D

As for the gold coins... well.. in that scale, a quarter is about the size of the period at the end of this sentence, maybe a little bigger. That would be absolutely impossible!

I wish Id saved the dogs I made out of sculpty and tried to glue them back together. My sister dropped all three of them one right after the other. I couldn't believe it. But it was really an accident and she didn't do it on purpose.

I decided it was more trouble than it was worth to try and glue them back together at the time. I may have to pick up more and make some again. Its a lot of fun to do.

Nolu, try scoring some dental tools! The things they scrape plaque with make great sculpting tools for miniatures.
OH! I have some of those. My grandfather was sort of a dentist. He, um, made fake teeth for people, lol. We have lots of stuff left over from his practice. I can't believe I didn't think of that before.. thank you!!

Charlie, that's so sad. :( I know how it feels when they break. I've had a couple dragons literally beyond repair, lol. That's what happens when they're dropped from ten feet up. Make some more.. and show us pictures! C'mon, you KNOW you want to!

Bet you have got a little enameling kiln in that stuff, then. They are wonderful for doing cloisonne and other decorative enameling things. Imagine a dragon with wire armatured, enameled wings . . . . Or a tiny dragon pin done in enamel, made to crouch on your shoulder.
