The Dragon Boat - part 2

I made a type of pouch to fit inside the body -

Again the opening was too soft to hold its shape and I had to create a channel to take a circle of aluminium sculpting wire so the opening would stay open.

In the next post, I show how the head was attached and the finished boat.
