Ok, so I was in a whimsical mood. My friend rings for the Raleigh Ringers, a non-profit travelling handbell choir. They have a charity auction every year in the spring. I decided this year I'd try a theme as opposed to just doing a basic dragon. behold! I made bells! And music, but I'm more proud of the bells. I made two molds out of sculpey and stuck a thin layer of greenstuff on them. When they dried I sculpted the rim and then later stuck a wire through the top to make the handle and the clapper. The music stand is a piece of cardboard on a sprue. The music even has the "shakes" (special ringing notation) on it! I sort of rushed the music and gave up on making the lines perfect. I am ashamed. But, I did have a deadline... Anyway, the dragon is done with nightmare black and vallejo model air metallics. The bells are vallejo brass, highlighted with the silver. I put a hint of the brass reflected on mr musician to add some realism. Enjoy!
