  • How Heavy is it?
    It weighs exactly 360 grams.
    You can fill it with gesso if you want something heavier.
    TIP: if you fill it only 1/4 of the way through, it'll behave like a weeble

  • How fragile is it?
    The papier-machê itself is OUTSTANDINGLY strong, so it depends solely on the kind of play-doh you're using.
    If you want something really sturdy, you can use polymer clay or Fimo and bake it, leaving a small gap for the air inside to expand. The papier-mache will withstand the heat, don't worry.
    I suggest making them out of cold porcelain (biscuit clay) though, you can find it for sale online, but here's a good and easy DIY recipe.
    It behaves a lot like Fimo and doesn't need baking.
    Cold porcelain is VERY resistant, so if you're making them with/for your kids this is the best choice, hands down.

  • How do I make the scales?
    A batch of different sized leaf shaped cookie cutters will do an excellent job. That's what I used =)
    You can buy them online here.
    No, I'm not getting any money for this. If you know a better place you can leave a comment below!)

I'm so behind but, because I don't do cable (why would I when the internet/Netlfix have so much to offer?!!) I've just gotten around to jumping on the Game of Thrones bandwagon in the last week or so. I've almost finished season 1 and I'm beyond hooked. I googled a bit to gather ideas on crafting my own dragon's eggs and your tutorial, by far, is the best/most sensible one I've come across. Kudos! I'm making my attempt this weekend!
