Opal Dragon

This is a custom I have been meaning to work on for a while. Good faux opals are surprisingly hard to come by! I was on the verge of trying to make my own out of sculpey, when I found some decent ones on etsy. I used a newly available Premo color, Frosty White Glitter, for the body. It has little flecks of iridescent glitter in it that really bring out the colors in the opal. The gems down her back are iridescent as well.

Hi Becca!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work yet again, this time in a post called October Birthstone Dragons II by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I couldn't resist that beautiful stone, and the dragon goes perfectly with it.  As always, you can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the amazing work!

Um, quick question - do you think that marbles would be okay in the oven? I have some nice ones that I'd love my dragons to be holding, but I'm not sure if they can stande the heat ^^'
