Dragon Egg Tutorial

So i was in Ikea last week and i was looking around in the discount pile and found this cute easter egg cover thing made from card on sale for £1.

so i got home and wanted to pimp my egg Game of Thrones style,  so i grabbed what i have lying around, which was…

- A glue stick 

- scissors

- three nail polishes ( i chose a purple, bronzey-red and silver colours) 

- plain A4 paper 


i started by painting the bottom 3rd of the egg with the lightest coloured nail polish (the silver) and while that was drying i cutting scale shapes out of the paper (I cut the scales down to the size of a finger print or penny).   

Stick the scales on in layers starting fro the bottom to the top and paint each layer with your main colour before adding another layer of scales. Do this until you get to the top of the egg. 

Once I had all my painted scales I began to blend my darkest colour (purple) from the tip of the egg to at little less the a 3rd down. 

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! YOUR DRAGON EGG! My egg is called Phil. 

Hope this helps some of you, it was really easy and cheap to make :-)

This is more cosplay stuff, but if anyone works with dragon spirits, this could be a cool/cute altar piece.
