Dragon Shoulder Puppet - Easy to Make!

Dragon Shoulder Puppet - Easy to Make!: "Start with some tinfoil armature for the head and jaws (teeth) - (and a nice tail) - wrap with some 26 gauge wire, then smooth on the Sculpy clay finish with some texture, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Then you make a wooden chassis with the vinyl tubing afixed to where the head will swivel, add the head on a long threaded rod, put in some eyehooks - attach some cable (through the vinyl tubing) to the eyehooks, then wrap the body with some duct-tape, hot-glue the feather boa around and around, affix the skeleton hands (painted gloss black) - and then the neodynum magnets (for the vest and the bottom of the dragon. Ta-Da - EASY!"
