100% pipe cleaners. No glue, no hidden sewing thread, just pipe cleaners, like always (well, except for the piano wire used to hang it on the hook on the wall...)
I built this dragon of pipe cleaners five years ago, when I was 15. It was the first oriental-style dragon I made (hence "original"), so that's why it's so ugly
It's the biggest pipe cleaner sculpture I've ever made though, and it looks pretty cool hanging on my living room wall, so I decided to honor it with a place on DA
It's about a metre across when it's coiled up like in the photos. I haven't measured it when it's stretched out.
