    Nice cuts, but I'm a bit confused on the theme.....you have tribal or Celtic looking dragons on the sides, an Egyptian Ankh cross on the back and Chinese letters going I'm not sure where.
    Really great work with the cuts, especially considering the tools you're using. I was just curious why such a mix of letters and symbols. And someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the last chinese symbol means 'spirit of the dragon' or 'fighting spirit of the dragon'

    This symbol is for dragon

    The character you posted is the simplified character for dragon; the one he cut is the traditional one.

    SPQQKY,
    Excellent questions that I ja was preparing myself to answer in the next commentary

    Search for the Chinese old writing
    http://www.mountaindragon.com/merchant/md.htm
    "Chinese Zodiac Characters"
    http://www.miyapottery.com/kanjicharm.htm

    On the Ankh "Symbol Christian" its greater meant this related "This combination of male and female symbols (the cross and circle) in the ankh suggest fertility and creative power."
    This perfect union can be represented by me and mine rotary tools suggest creative power."
    With certainty it is the symbol that these more gifts in images of dragons and therefore can represent well my project very

    Okay, so it's traditional dragon symbol. It my kenpo karate classes (years ago), we we told it was "spirit of the dragon', but that doesn't surprise me the translation is messed up by them. We were told our crest meant 'spirit of the dragon , heart of the tiger' 'the way of the fist and empty hand'. I'm sure it's much more elegant in Chinese.

    simosaurus and polished skull,
    The letters projected in… needing the finishing in the part where the mass Epoxi was applied
    As it has many details small I must delay 2 or 3 days to make the final finishing in the mass

    really the main way to get the best work from your dremel is to be patient and go at it slow. the slower u go, the more precise you'll be, and the better it'll turn out. and when u take it a lil slow u notice things which can lead to improvements

    After finished plus a dragon I decided to apply a painting to protect the metal also to see as it would be the ink in the cuts
    On the painting the painting is test therefore will be one of effect
    The part of the Chinese letters is with the mass that will only be removed later

    Wow. This project is simply amazing. All this time I was looking through and admiring your dremel skills, and thinking what awesome cuts you have made, but as a case mod, it just didnt look like it was thought out well or that it would be coherent. With the last post, you have just proved me wrong. This mod is beautiful, I can't describe how good it looks :clap:

    the painting this more dries and with this she was finer improving the visualization of the cuts
    I placed the acrylic in the dragons from above and with this they had been straighter improving the visualization
    I placed the screws to see as they were and liked very resulted
    I also placed mine grill
