I call this fellow "Sylacris", a wall-mounted dragon bust sculpture kit, cast in durable urethane resin, ready for you to assemble and paint however you imagine it! A great piece for model makers and dragon aficionados. I created the original sculpture in oil-based clay, made a mold of the pieces, and cast each one by hand. The sculpture comes out just over 1 foot (~31 cm) from the wall, and the base is 8 inches (~20 cm) in diameter.

The dragon I sculpted is a tough old beast, with sharp fangs protruding from his lips and a scar across the scales of his muzzle. You can assemble and paint him as-is, or let your imagination run wild adding things like gems, fur, or kit-bashing him with additional pieces you either find or sculpt yourself!

The base, which resembles crumbled stone and is cast as a solid piece, is now an optional add-on, in case you want to attach the dragon to a different plaque or even directly to the wall!

CAST OPTIONS

You can choose from these options for the cast pieces:

- Raw cast vs cleaned-up: A raw cast is straight out of the mold with minimal cleanup. There will be some flashing and the edges may be sharp. A raw cast will require you to do some sanding and cleanup before use. You can also choose the cleaned-up option, where we take care of removing all of the flashing and sanding the edges clean and smooth.

This is a made-to-order piece, meaning that once I receive your order, you are added to my casting queue. The processing time (before shipping) for this item is 1-2 weeks.

The kit comes with the following:

- 1 Dragon head piece, cast hollow and foam-filled
- 1 OPTIONAL rocky base piece, cast solid - includes 1 black felt back piece
- 2 horns, cast hollow
- 2 white plastic eye pieces (12mm flat-back eyes or cabochons would also fit if you want to get creative!)
- 1 keyhole hanger with 2 screws (holes in the resin are pre-drilled)
- Instruction guide

You will need to provide:

- Standard Phillips-head screwdriver (normal screwdriver with a cross head)
- Glue (See recommendations below and in the instruction guide)
- Paint (See recommendations below and in the instruction guide)
- Wall mounting screw
- Optional: There will be small gaps where the pieces fit together. You can use epoxy putty to fill these if you wish.

The assembled sculpture weighs about 1 lb (0.45 kg) without the base piece, or 2.5 lbs (1.13 kg) with the base piece. Make sure the wall mounting method you use can hold that weight.

Glue recommendations:
Superglue (look for types that say CA or cyanoacrylate) works great for bonding resin parts, as does 2-part epoxy. Hot glue can also be used.

Painting recommendations:
I typically recommend starting with a spray primer rated for use on plastics, and then do detail work with acrylic paints. You can also finish up with a spray sealant in matte or gloss, whichever suits your creative vision best!

So much nice than I expected. Thw mesh is really good quality, thick enough to hold its form, and easy enough to see through (think midrange sunglasses). I had a mask that needed there's blacked out, it took all of 5 minutes to get the swathes trimmed, lined up, and in place. If I ever have another project, ill be back for moar

Just arrived and love it as soon as I pulled it out! It's perfect! I needed the smile as soon as I saw it. The day I had has not been the best but the second I saw it a smile came to my face and I knew I will get that smile I needed each time I looked at it and the other one I bought. What a great picture! I'll be back for another!

I LOVE this mask! I wore it to a Halloween party and everyone thought it was super cool. When I got the mask there were instructions inside that described how to place the strap, padding, mesh, and how to paint the mask. The instructions are very helpful for me since I’ve never bought a mask before where it was kind of a “make the mask how you want it” type deal. At first I didn’t like the idea of having place mesh or the strap on myself because I’m a lazy couch potato, but I ended up really having fun placing those things on. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the strap they give ya, so instead I just used an elastic band, which helped with being an easier alternative to fitting snug around my head. Velcro strips help to keep the strap in place. I would 100% buy from this seller again, they have great products :)
