Copper and Nickel Dragon by SweetMayDreams Copper and Nickel Dragon by SweetMayDreams
This sculpture is made of flat pieces of copper and nickel. Each plane was carefully cut out individually with a tiny jewelry saw and then soldered and riveted together. And of course lots and lots of time spent measuring and sanding to make sure it all fit together seamlessly! :D The color gradation was made with patina. The arms with the bowl move up and down on the rivets so it can balance on almost all surfaces.

Sculpture is approx 14" long and 7" tall

I was wondering, do you make these to sell? If so, how much would this one be?? It is absolutely perfect for what i would want it for :3

And this is stunningly crafted by the way, love the style!

Hi! :happybounce: Unfortunately I no longer have access to the equipment I used to make this, so I can't make any more metal projects....Hopefully some day I'll be able to though! This particular one isn't for sale as of now as I use it in my craft shows :) but if I ever decide it's time to sell it I'll let you know!
