Green Dragon sculpture - Super Sculpey by tallydragon Green Dragon sculpture - Super Sculpey by tallydragon
Small dragon sculpture, handmade from super sculpey clay and painted with high-quality acrylics. Set with real glass eyes and sealed with a matte varnish. I tried something new this time and painted on the scale details instead of actually carving them into the clay. The effect was pretty neat, I think, but I prefer carving in the end because I like texture.

This little guy is available for sale in my new etsy shop! www.etsy.com/listing/166526447…?

Materials: Super sculpey, acrylics, matte varnish, glass eyes

Thank you, I'm glad you like my dragons! :) (sorry for the message spam, I'm getting to all your comments all at once--I haven't had internet for most of the past week or two!). At the moment I'm full up on one-off commissions, I'm devoting most of my time to preparing dragons that will be for casting. It takes a very long time to do a single sculpture so I've had to start charging more for originals...which is why I'm hoping to get my line of more affordable resin dragons off the ground as soon as I can! :)

Resin is...I guess it's a kind of chemical compound? There's more than one kind of resin, the resin people usually use for casting sculptures is basically a homemade plastic. You can't sculpt with it, because it starts as two liquids that react with each other to make plastic. It's only good for making replicas--I started using it since it can take me weeks to sculpt a single dragon, but then I can cast it and make multiple copies of the same dragon. You *can* sculpt with polymer clays (like Sculpey), air dry clays, and certain two-part compounds like Apoxie Sculpt (apoxie and epoxies aren't a clay, so they might count as a resin too? I'm not sure to be honest). My favorite clays to sculpt with are Sculpey clays, which bake in the oven. But everyone has different preferences for clay. :)

And dragons are basically the best, I've been hoarding dragon figurines since I was a kid--it's why I started making them, I just don't have enough! :)

I purchase all my glass eyes online from Van Dykes Taxidermy; they have a great range of types and sizes. I usually get colored "bird eyes".
