Vortex the dragon is the second of five models I plan to build of the "big five" - griffin, phoenix, dragon, unicorn and pegasus. The inner structure is made out of styrofoam covered with white plastic tape and sequins. Mane on back and beard are made out of feathers; claws, teeth and eyes are made out of fimo clay. I used nylon string for the whiskers. The blue fins are made out of painted silc paper. Nose painted with acryl paint.
