ooak dragon again by AmandaKathryn ooak dragon again by AmandaKathryn
ooak polymer clay dragon

I have been working on this guy on and off for nearly a year, but I finally finished him and he's awesome!
his wings are a new expiriment that worked out rather well. they have in internal wire armature that is covered in cloth and then painted with latex and mica powders. the effect is rather perfect, they are lethery and posable and very dragon like

anyway He is for sale on eBay

Finally!!! I get to see one of your dragon sculpts!!! :excited: I am not disappointed! :) it is lovely, shiny, and has the most beautiful face,...even in a snarl! :heart:

I tried the wing method you used, and it was great until the latex began to split. Maybe trying a silicone like 'Dragonskin' may last longer over time. Instead of using it as a molding product, painting it over a fabric would be just as easy as using the latex.

it depends on the fabric you use it has to have a good texture for the latex or dragonskin to get into or it will eventually peel off. with latex (at least the stuff I have) you have to use several layers for it to work. with dragon skin you only have to use one layer. Dragon skin is more expensive and I am out of it or I would have used dragon skin....dragon skin is also heavier so I am not sure the weight would have worked

I know! I wish they could make the stuff cheaper! I would use more of it myself. I avoid the latex stuff now, because I have a contact allergy to it. Maybe trying a thin layer of the Dragonskin would work better? I am pretty sure there are additives that you can get for it, to change the consistency...(again, more expenses) but I'm sure it is worth the extra cost.

:heart: I still just adore that Dragon! I'm sure the bids will exceed your reserve! :heart:

yeah, I am allergic to the letex too, but then I am also allergic to resin, so I wear gloves a lot. which finding nonlatex gloves can be a pain as well.

Thankfully, I am not allergic to resin. :phew: Gloves just aggravate me, because it inhibits my tactile ability. I would love to see more dragons sculpted by you in future!
