    Body uses the larger gold paper, head and wrap uses the smaller gold paper. The red paper is only used for the nostril.

    Hi there, I was wondering if I could get some help with the dragon. I'm having a bit trouble with the top part of the head. I have the same exact box as the dragon and I lost the instructions. And i found that you have them on here at your website which it really helped me. I was wondering if you could help me with the head where the circle part of held at. Which way does the pieces of paper go?

    That kind of helps. Thanks for trying though. I have another question. For the wrap, is it 120 pieces of paper? For the body, is it 76 rows of the same time? Thanks.

    The head is very complicated, I'm not sure I have followed the directly exactly either. The pieces connecting the head and horns, kind of go vertically in, instead of the normal horizontal position. The ones on the top of forehead, is rotated horizontally and vertically, from normal position.

    The wrap is 120 pieces, using single piece stacking; body is 77 rows, other than head, feet and tail area, it just follows the 1,2,1 stacking pattern.

    Assume you are talking about the part that is circled in the instruction? Take a look at the image I had attached to earlier comment. You follow the usual pattern of stacking for making the head, where the hole of the pieces are facing towards the mouth. At the forehead, you want to insert a couple pieces so the hole is facing upwards, you may need to use a lot of strong glue to do this, as they are not actually inserted into any holes, just jabbed in between pieces. Then you insert another row of it , such that it has the point side up.

    To answer one of the earlier question, the dimension of the paper pieces used, they are show in the instruction.

    30mmx60mm - 128 pieces for the head
    50mmx100mm - 122 pieces for the body
    30mmx60mm - 120 pieces for the wrap

    Thank you for sharing the beautiful golden dragon instruction. I couldn't find another one on the net. The dragon is awesome.I really want to try to make one. Could you tell me the diagram shows a long triangle right before the leg, is it a special fold? Is the spiral attached to the body at all? I have looked at the head photos over and over again, still not sure how it put together, but I'll give it a try and see. Thanks you very much.

    Long triangles before the leg is just trying to tell you where to tuck them. The spiral is not connected to the body, you will need to twist it around the body, carefully. Good luck with the head.

    Thank you Blue for your prompt response. Okay, I spent the whole yesterday to try to figure out how to put together the head. The head is pretty heavy. At the end, I just do whatever it is necessary to get it hold together, forget about the Korean instruction. I'm close to getting there. Will work on it more today. It's a cool dragon in deed.

    Not sure what is the circle on top of the forehead you are referring to.
