Both the axe & the swords of these weapons are to have 'embossed' dragons on them such a the type on my vases are to have, shown below are a couple of the types of dragons i will be using on the blades.
But more on these later. For now i want to talk about the changes i have & am making to the hilt to the first sword so far.
As you can see as mentioned before i changed the snouts (rounded them off) & now have added a few horns to both dragons.
Here it is close up:
As you can probably see too i am adding teardrop diamonds for the eyes of these dragons too. I have to work on the horns a little to shape them but i also have to build around the eyes too. I will be using pizza box card stock to do this later.
I will also be adding some standard shaped diamonds for a spaced ring around the outside of the pomel hasp too. Both types of diamonds are shown below. Sorry for the fuzzy picture unfortunately my pain tollerance levels for standing were exceeded by the time i got this far.
