I estimate this is 90% completed. There are a number of little details I am still wanting to work on (including especially changing up the materials to include different textures and colors), but this is more or less what I had in mind from the beginning.

So last post I showed you a basic outline, constructed entirely of stone brick, of what was to become a petrified dragon skull and the entrance to my Evil Nether Castle. I didn’t get a ton of work done on that larger project this week, but I did get the skull about 90% done. And here are the pics to prove it.

Click on the pictures to see a bigger version and a more in-depth description of the materials and methods I used to construct the various features.

Overall, I’m pretty pleased. Other than some minor details here and there, I think I’m now ready to integrate this skull into a larger castle structure. I’d like to hear what you think, particularly with regard to the eyes. Should I go with red lamps rather than white ones? Are there any other parts of the skull that you could suggest some improvements?
