  • 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!

Well, first round we didn't have nearly enough glue :( My 12 year old and I are gonna give it another shot next weekend with more glue and maybe more rolling of the dough.

You can make you own glue, with two parts water and one part flower.
Add a little detergent to make it bug and mold proof and you're done ;)
