I got the body pretty finished .
I just have to do some minor things and maybe make the wings matt.
The wings look relatively simple, but they were one of the more difficult things I have made in my life.
Lots and lots of patience and I am still not 100% happy.
Today I start on the base and the plinth which will hold the dedicated jewellery I am going to make for this piece.
I am going to make a wood base and then cover it with burnt copper.
The bottom of the plinth is going to have this design as the base that will be engraved in brass and set with garnets.
I want to use garnets though out the entire sculpture—I like the red and the dragon bit.
