Snakes are not my favourite animal! But when a request came in I had just the piece of chain. The realism is uncanny. Even knowing it is not alive, I’ve had people refuse to touch it!
The chain is doubled together and twisted and retains its flexibility. The head is made from larger links with washers for eyes. The tail is forge twisted to resemble a rattle snakes tail. Sprayed on Penetrol has given the piece a lovely sheen.
