« Part 10: Ready for sanding and painting. Part 11 of Dust Collector Series series no next part

Hi folks,
I am ready to paint the DC and I have spent most of the evening sketching out the fire breathing dragon, I have about 4 sketches but still not 100% pleased with any one of them. I am going for something like this,( not my sketch, just an idea)

If anyone out there has a suggestion (pic) please post it in this blog. Something tells me it’s going to take longer to design it than it will be to paint it on there.

Thanks for all your input

I think it’ll look awesome. How are you going to do it?

Not quite sure Russ, I can draw pretty well as you can see, but I am not that great with painting. I haven’t used my airbrush in probably 20 years. I can tell you this, it will take me longer to paint this on with the full body than it would to probably build another one. I guess a little bit each day and a lot of patience. :-)

Maybe you could do a silk screen and just stick it on. Check with Fed Ex about some options. They can work wonders.
