The next stage was a big one, I spent some time on the blue dragon adding the spine in a frosty aquamarine tone.
I also spent about 4 hours, meticulously highlighting each an every scale with their respective hue family. I made the colours in glass baby food jars so I could store them longer and use them on the other piece.
I addition I used a sharpie to add a dark line to each and every rainbow scale. It took tremendous focus and concentration but I am really happy with how the scales turned out on this piece.
