On one side of the resulting ball, make holes for eyes of the dragon, extending the wire. Squeezing the ball with your hands, give it the shape of the head of the dragon: splyusnuta it on the sides, make a more convex region of the nose, eyebrows, pull forward the upper jaw (resembling a duck bill). For a greater volume of parts available frame to build another wire.
When the shape of the frame satisfy you, glue it with pieces of torn Newspapers or strips of thin cotton cloth, thoroughly soaked them in white glue diluted in half with water. The first layer of papier-mache dry for about eight hours.
