Making dragons

Today 3 friends came to visit me.
We were going to make dragons!
It was a very spontaneous get-together.....
and those are the most fun ones

Sjoukje and Ineke

Hanny and Sjoukje

I have to thank Nicky Cooper and Nikki Rowe for the inspiration.
Without their examples,
we wouldn't have been able to make
such nice dragons and other miniatures!!

From left to right, made by..... 
Hanny, Sjoukje,Sjoukje, me and Ineke

The left bottle is made by Sjoukje,
the purple ones by me and the rest by Hanny!

It was so much fun to make everything!!!
And I think we did a good job

I had a little mishap with my dragon
He first looked like this.... 
But when I took him out of the oven,
all the black fimo had melted!!!
It had run all over the little dragon
I'm not quite sure anymore that it was fimo!!!

Anyway.....I wasn't happy at all!!! 
(photo made by my loving daughter  )

But thankfully I managed to limit the damage!

It was a wonderful day with wonderful ladies..
Thank you for your friendship!!!

nou weet ik niet waar ik meer van geschrokken ben, die levensechte draakjes (wonderschoon) dat prachtige (bos) fruit of die enorme lap tong! Jullie maken mooie dingen (je dochter ook :) )

You've all made wonderfull dragons and bottles.
Sounds like a nice meeting. Glad you could 'safe' your dragon....melting fimo....I never have heard of that. I think the dark purple works better than the black.

Was gezellig hè!!
Gelukkig kon je toch je draakje nog redden. Heeft ie zijn stekel al weer "te plak"??

Margriet, there's no better way to spend an afternoon than to make dragons! Pleasurable to the mythic proportions! :):)

I can feel the fun just by reading this post.
