This is the first test paint I did of the NEW hatching dragon.
This little guy will replace the OLD hatching dragon.
The OLD hatching dragon is almost impossible to paint quickly enough for us to afford to sell it at a reasonable price. It has so much “edge” area where the different colors have to be painted on SOOOO carefully… after that last batch we painted, I finally said “OK, we are DONE with this piece!”
We will probably continue to make the OLD hatchers as ebay pieces, but no more production ones!
See how I got around the edge problem on the NEW hatching dragon?
No rock base to paint, that is one big improvement.
He is cast in two pieces!
The little dragon can be airbrushed separately, and then, when he is nice and dry, glued into his pristine egg shell -no paint drips!!
I added a pic of the little dragon out of his egg so you can see how he fits inside of it.It took a lot of fitting and sanding to get him to fit snugly.
I forgot to put the jewels in the foreheads of these dragons, but they will have them.
