Blue Dragons Free Tutorial and Pattern

Design by Leslie Gibbs

BlueDragonflies

An 8" layered dragonfly panel decorated with jewels. Swirls of blues and greens for the water, which is contained within a border of blues and browns, add realism to the piece. The dragonflies are then created separately and soldered onto the base to give a three-dimensional effect. The panel is completed with the addition of five beveled jewels for added sparkle. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
