CD Shard Dragon by Amon-a-boat CD Shard Dragon by Amon-a-boat
The is Sculpture I made for art class. It is a wire mesh base with CD shards hot glued to it. I used a band saw with a really thin blade to cut the pieces for the wings, and scissors for the smaller shards. The shards are hot glued to the wire frame. I only cut myself once on the wire, but I burned myself plenty of times on the hot glue gun. This project took me around 80 hours.

That is spectacular. I'm not even kidding. This is incredible! I knew that CDs held a certain spark for artistic purposes, but I'd never put them to use. But you have unlocked their prismatic potential, my friend. O___o
