Copper Dragon

A few of the steps for the copper dragon today.

1. Drew the outline and cut with a bit of space round it. Then created a patina with heat.
2. result!
3. embossing by rubbing with my finger over a rubbing plate
4. trim and used a pencil on back to give definition to the outline.
I think I like the back too! Perhaps another day?
5. Copper Dragon!
When I did the outline with pencil, I laid it on the scrap of cloth.
I have already stitched the background, but I will show the process tomorrow when I have worked out how I am going to apply it.

What you are meant to work these things out before you get to point of doing it?
