Hi!
Is there any instruction availiable where I can find Chinese/Japanese figures?

I want to do some twisting for a Chinese Restaurant and I thought it would be funny to do some Chinese sculptures. Dragon, Buddha, Samurai Sword...

Cheers!

Thanks Wes!

Well, I actually know how to make different swords. Smile
That was just an example of what kind of figures I am looking for.

I just thought there were DVDs/books released that are Chinese themed...

I have never seen a dvd or book with a chinese theme. There are some pieces here and there but that is all.

Bad to the balloon has a really good dragon hat.

I just had a interesting idea that you could make the signs from the zodiac. Ask them what year they are and make the corresponding animal. I have never seen a OX balloon so good luck with that one.

Yes, I also thought about star signs and symbols like Yin+Yang. But I don't want to twist "normal" animals (like a dog or a monkey). I want to add some Chinese flair/style into it.

Just Google China images, and sculpt.
