This was the first attempt at sculpture after the snow cat and alien sculptures.
Studying the construction and development of clay dragons I decided to have a go to make the cake decoration for my nephew very much into dragons and dinosaurs.
Construction was from the inside out, taking into account of quadruped and predator anatomy such as forward pointed eyes and the hips.
The body was constructed from Marzipan, sugar paste with wire and foil armatures with horns and teeth carved from almonds and button eyes. The ears had paperclip armatures.
