Unfurling

I have a new respect for butterflies.  Emerging from chrysalids and pumping ichor through the veins; plumping up wings that have been crumpled up

Adding the wings to this dragon has caused me a number of headaches and presented problems that need to be solved.

So having finished off wet felting a very fine felt, I have been easing each wing onto the armature and beginning to pin it into place.  Thankfully felt is a very forgiving material.

It will fold, twist and, as it has no nap, will tolerate being turned any which way.  There is still a massive amount of work to do but he is starting to come together now.
