edited to add a link to an earlier post...
I told DH I wouldn't say any more than that, but he knew that was not possible. That's probably why he shook his head and laughed. Anyway here is the finished sculpture.
As I said in an earlier post, I am not that into dragons. My dear friend is though and has a collection, so I wanted to do my best for that reason. I started this project May 1st and finished it June 14th. I started out sculpting the head from Creative Paperclay and after refining the head, I started on the body. I used craft wire and wrapped it in masking tape and added the clay to that, letting it dry in layers and building from there.
After it was completed, I was going to paint it in what I thought was the traditional dragon color, green, but he looked too much like a frog. After several false starts, I decided he needed to be one color, so I spray painted him with 18K gold plate paint and called it complete.
DH suggested white for the claws and horns and helped me with the stand. The stand is an inexpensive wooden plaque that I got from Michael's. I base coated it in black and faux finished with copper and gold metallic paints. The sculpture is supported by a dowel attached in his tummy and glued into a hole in the base. This hole was very professionally drilled by my carpenter hubby with a butterfly bit. Fancy, huh? Hope you like it.
Well, that's it for today. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and get ready for Monday!
