Photo-32 ToyMax Mold 38-1 Next are the wings. I like to use one of the molds from the ToyMax Mini Dragons. These make great wings. Because the wings are so large, they must have wires inside them to hold their shape. 

 Photo-35 Drag the goop with a toothpick to cover the area where the wires will be. This should be a very thin layer of goop.

Photo-38  Carefully pour goop over the wire and into the entire mold.

Photo-41 Here are the two wing parts with all of the webbing cut away. Try to keep the parts as flat as possible.

Photo-44  With the ribs rebaked to the mold, pour in the second color for the web between the ribs. If you were sucessful in baking the ribs to the mold, the second color will not run under the ribs.

Photo-47 Here's the front side of the finished wings.

Photo-50 Punch a hole about 1/4 inch below the already existing hole.

Photo-53 Here's the back with the newly prepared holes to accept the wings.

Photo-56 Here's the complete set of parts to make a mini-dragon.

Photo-58 Back view. 

Photo-33 The wire begins with a loop at the base of the wing, and then curves up into the top of the wing. Using wire of appropriate color will help hide the wire inside the goop. Make sure the wires are able to lie as flat as possibe in their mold.

Photo-36 First layer of goop baked onto the wire area.  


 Photo-39 Bake the wing with the wire. Remove the wing and attempt to not bend the wire.

Photo-42  Paint the mold cavities with just a little bit of uncolored goop. Do not bake yet.


Photo-45 Put a small amout of goop between each rib. Drag the goop to fill the cavity with a toothpick.



Photo-48 Here's the inside of the finished wings. 

Photo-51 This photo shows both of the new holes punched. 

Photo-54 Insert the wings into the new holes and bend the wings outward slightly. 

Use the original instructions to assemble your dragon, or read on to put it together. I have posted a copy of the original instructions for those that want to check it out on the downloads page.

-Put the feet into the belly part.

-Put the spike fin and the horns into the face part.

-Fold the back of the face into the front or top of the face

-Put the tail into the back, the back should already have the wings installed.

-Attach the belly to the back at all of the attachment points around the edge.

-Attach the jaw to the top of the belly and back assembly. Use the two forward holes in the jaw.

-Attach the face to the jaw by threading the fangs up and through the face. Attach the back of the face through the one empty hole in the back of the jaw.

Your Mini-Dragon should be finished now!

Photo-34 Before the wires are baked into the wings, a small amount of goop is baked into the mold where the wires will be placed.


Photo-37 Carefully place the wire onto the already baked goop.


Photo-40 Trim away the webbing between the ribs of the wing. 

Photo-43 Place the trimmed wing parts into the mold on top of the unbaked clear goop. The clear goop will help to rebake the wing ribs to the mold. When rebaking, three to four minutes should be enough. You don't want the ribs to loose their shape.

Photo-46 Here's the mold with both colors and ready to finish baking.


Photo-49 Now the back needs to be prepared to accept the wings. I use a small punch I made, to make a few new holes in the back for the wings. 

Photo-52 The web between the new hole and the existing hole is cut away.

Photo-55 This is the inside view of the back. You can see how the wings fit into the back.
