Dragon Table and Hats - Debie on etsy.

Here's the Dragon table almost complete. I've spent hours upon hours making this. Trashed my room in the process due to using i reckon almost every tool, paint, clay, etc.
I need to work on the book because it looks a bit boring, and fill a couple more jars. I'd like to make a dragon embryo for the biggest jar, so will give that a go.
On the table there are, bones, wing bones, blood, eyes, umbilical cord, claws, horns, ground bones, heart strings, eggs, hide and the skull for the dragon parts.
For the dragon hide i tried using some real snake skin donated by Debbie of Piskies and Poppets, but just couldnt get it to look right so ended up making the hide from clay.
I used a faux snakeskin book to achieve the scale texture. The book i used is a blank book available in whsmith which i use for my ideas and drawing, and always loved the surface. Its now beome my texture sheet too, lol.

The fly argaric hat stand is almost complete. I keep wandering off as usual to other minis but here it is so far. I need to add more lttle items to the bag, add a hanging wand and other little bits i can think of.
While making the hat stand couldnt resist making a book stand to match.

My lovely good friend Debie from Put some beautiful new witchy minis on etsy last night.
Heres a selecetion of whats a available.
These are available in Debies etsy shop -

The mandrake scene includes a lttle trolls finger to subdue screaming mandrakes... brilliant!

  5. Super dragon table Nikki! This is coming together so nicely. I like the sturdy table you've used for it. Did you make or buy? I'm in the market for a sturdy table or desk for my archeologist.

    The hat stands are most complimentary to the witch hats....I think combining the hat with it's interesting little stand is brilliant.


  6. Fantastic dragon table!I love every detail of it! Great job Nikki!

  7. Amazing work! I am in awe of you both! What fantastic creations! One day I am going to try this--so don't laugh at my pitiful attempts when I do!


  8. Nikki just when I think your minis are the best they can be you take your artistic talents up another couple of levels. I love that dragon table to bits and those book and hat stands are wonderful too. Thank you so much for mentioning my goodies.
