When the Dragon is painted, it is affixed to the base with steel pins and Aves Fixit-Sculpt, which is re-detailed and painted to make the transition into the rocks seamless. The entire sculpture is then lacquered to bring out the vibrancy of the pigments in the paint and seal the beauty of the sculpture in forever. A wooden pedestal base is added to the bottom of the sculpture, and Vargas is then ready for a high-quality photo session. The vision of this Dragon in my head is finally brought forth into the realm of reality!!
