Here is another smaller dragon trophy that I made. It is made completely out of found materials, mostly paper mache and old bed sheets from good will.
Here is the other larger dragon I did: [link]

Waste not want not. This Paper Mache Dragon Head Trophy made from recycled materials is a remarkable display of turning trash into something to be treasured forever! Check out ~MandieLaRue's gallery for more papier-mâché dragon goodness. ( Featured by cakecrumbs )

OH MY GOD. I was just looking for some figures made from paper mache, and I came across this. THIS IS SOO AWESOME. How much paper did you used? Did it take very long to make it?

Thank you! I am not sure how much paper I used.... but it took about a week of working on it all day long. It was fun, but I had a tight deadline so it was a little bit of a marathon :)

Saw you at Comic Con!  I had my little family with me and we all love dragons, especially my seven-year-old.  He draws them all day long and has been since he was three-years-old!  :D  He was amazed with your dragon heads and, no doubt, has been inspired.  Thanks for taking the time to chat with us and explain some of your process.
