Helldrake!

I used the oil on water technique to achieve the wing effects. The base is made of Hirstart blocks, paper towel and kabob sticks.

Float a couple of drops of nail polish on water and very carefully swirls the colors together. I found that cold water and a warm room seem to help. Swirl the polish with a toothpick. Then dip the part into the water and the polish sticks on the part. This took some practice, and I used black primer with a drybrush of white over top.

My main problem was doing all of this fast enough so that the polish didn't 'freeze' before adhering. Also the polish can turn into a blob and that isn't very useful.

Looking at it, I imagine looking into the warp on the Helldrake's skin. With the dark metal trim is a great color scheme JB. Is that two different nail polish colors?
