This is a photo of our traditional dragon inlay. Each scale is an inlaid piece of abalone in the mother of pearl body. The belly is brass. We make the legs out of copper. The claws and teeth are bone. For the dragon's breath, we take gold filings and suspend them in an optically clear epoxy. The tongue is made of vermilion and the eyes can be red LED's, or rubies, as shown in this example. Alembic Dragon inlay pic
