  • Looking for a pattern of a dragon

    anyone know where I can find a pattern of a full dragon ?
    Ive been looking all over but cant seem to find any that would fit ,looking for something that can be around 12 inches tall or so , and that would work for segmentation . I would greatly appreciate any help .

    Thank you ,

    Charlie,
    Check out Lora Irish's book - it is called something like "Great book of Dragon patterns".
    Sue & Toni might also have a pattern you'd like - I can't remember whether any of theirs are full body.
    You might also browse the coloring book area of your local bookstore - there's oodles of ideas in some of them.
    But what do dragons have to do with ducks??
    Good luck on your quest.

      I've seen some on the MSN free pattern sites, but you'll have to search for them. Also, dragon patterns are very popular with people who color glass and they can be easily adapted for fretsaw use - it might be worth hunting for some of those, too.

        Kewl Thank you Sandy and Gill
        Will try those and see what I can come up with

        Thank you both


        and Sandy the only way I can think of that it might have to do with ducks, is it starts with a d LOL

          One of the first intarsia's I ever did was a dragon, it was called "puffy the dragon" and I bought it through Wildwood designs. It is a full dragon, I'm guessing it was about 15 tall and 18 wide.
          There's also Mentora...right you did that one.
          I have the book of dragon patterns, but they aren't exactly intarsia ready, but you can certainly adapt them.
          I got tired of my "puffy" and it wasn't that well done because it was one of my first intarsia's, but everyone else loved it. I took it to a gallery and it sold in a couple days for $250. I was stunned, because I was thinking perhaps bon-fire. People love dragons, I already sold my mentora to the first person I showed it to for $50. I'm not really into selling my stuff, but once in a while I get tired of something so I get rid of it.
          I'm going to make a dragon pattern like what you are wanting, but not till I'm done with my pixie mirror, which could be several months.
          Here's a picture of another big dragon picture that I did..for grins and giggles.

              yeah, next time I'll design a frameless dragon. We can both build it at the same time if you want. It'll probably be January by then. This pixie mirror is going to take awhile, it's probably 600-800 pcs and I only have 100 and the frame done. This will be the picture I compete with next year. I'm making it for my wife, and my oldest daughter wants a dragon, so I'll do that next. Then my youngest daughter wants a dog and a cat so I'm thinking a dog and cat cuddling together perhaps. Call wildwood, I bet they have that puffy dragon laying around somewhere's. I't's a pretty good pattern, deffinitely good practice.
              Oh, that dragon book is a fox chapel book. but the dragon your looking for wasn't from that book. I haven't done anything with that book other than look at it to give my brain something to stew about.

                  Whilst we're on this topic, has anyone got a pattern of Margaret Thatcher?

                    Charlie,
                    I have found and saved numerous " coloring pages " sites from the web . They are designed to be printed and colored by children and have a wealth of simple, and sometimes complicated, line drawings . The images are typically categorized. I often use them as patterns for yard art and special little gifts and such. With your ingenuity, I'm willing to bet you can find something that will work. Just Google " coloring pages " ....or I can send you some of my links
                    Hope this helps

                      Nope - but I have one of Cherie Blair that would be much better - might be a bit costly in terms of the amount of timber required though!!!!

                            I know Toni and Sue were looking to design a scary dragon, but there's no need to be quite so explicit, Carl . That's the stuff of nightmares.

                            Cherie Blair? Hmmmm..... I bet you couldn't produce a life-like pattern of her with her mouth shut .

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
