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.

I was gonna say something in the sense of how epic and amazing this is but I'm just to stumped. (It takes a lot to shut me up, just sayin)
This looks so epic, the claws and the wings, hell even the teeth and the eyes look fucking stunning.
I am however concerned about how many times you cut yourself on those shards! It really looks sharp to me! :)

How well does hot glue stay? Is there a better adhesive short of welding or soldering the pieces together?

:iconamon-a-boat:
Amon-a-boat Featured By Owner May 29, 2015  Student General Artist
Well you cant really weld or solder, since the CDs are plastic.  I haven't found any better adhesive that will word.  Some sort of epoxy would probably hold better, but it doesn't dry quick enough.

So awesome, do you think this can be done using a stanley knife? I admire your patience with this! <3

I'm not sure that a stanley knife would work very well. Good heavy duty scissors work wonders though.  And thanks!
