I think miniaturists may be just a bit obsessed sometimes . . .
We had a picnic lunch at the beach a few days ago when the sun was shining. I was idly beachcombing when I saw that there were a lot of little dead crabs. Alan got a fright at my shriek of delight - 'dragon's teeth!!' He helped me gather a whole lot.
I can use the whole claw as a dragon jaw, or cut the tips for teeth - perfect for my little dragon scene :)
And how about this - big grape pips make instant bird skulls - if you hollowed out the eye sockets while they are still soft, let them dry out, then paint them black you'd have raven skulls.
