Paper Mache Dragons

Paper Mache Dragons

Welcome to my Paper Mache Dragon site.   This is not my primary website.   I use this one specifically for talking about paper mache dragons.    If you want more information about me, paper mache, dragons as well as monsters, pigs, and everything else paper mache, please visit Gourmet Paper Mache.  (No advertisements there! Well, except for my books.)    See more videos there too. 

Meanwhile, since you're here, watch the videos.   Look at some of the pictures.  Think about paper mache, or if you're French, papier mache.    Think about maybe making a dragon yourself. 

Thank you!

Dan (the Monster-man) Reeder

New Video!!!
Here is a video of Juvenile Drogon being made.  Please take advantage of my fancy camera and watch this in HD and full screen.

I'm not a puppeteer.  But it was really fun teaching this little guy to dance!  Micheal Jackson would be proud of me at the end!

Yes, I do kiss all of my projects goodnight!

I love this pair of projects.  Have you noticed that baby animals are always cute? (yeh, I know, usually cuter than human babies.)  Well I wanted to make a pair of babies that were parallel in attitude, expression, and posture.  You'll have to tell me if you think I did it.

This is my very first video.  You can tell that I didn't know what I was doing.  (Okay, so some of you think I still don't know what I'm doing.)  So pardon the resolution (this was my old camera).  By the way, I chronicled the making of this dragon with photos.   If you want to make a dragon like this, check out my Dragon-maker's Handbook.

I thought it would be fun to make a dead dragon.  Here it is:

Here are a couple of my new dragons.   I am revising my Dragon-Maker's Handbook.   These will be the subjects of my instructions.

Below are a couple of dragons I made on commission.  The orange one I made for my friend Pascal and his family.

Below is a paper mache dragon commission.    A really nice couple wanted a sweet little dragon, kind of like William in my "William's Treasure" book.   I couldn't sell William since he is the star of my book, so I decided to make a cute little dragon sitting like a dog would sit waiting for you to throw him a toy.  Here he is.
