You might recall that I tried my hand at making a black opal dragon about a year ago. I made a couple versions, and while the second attempt (Black Opal Dragon - Version 2) was pretty good, it wasn't quite perfect.
I decided to revisit the idea, using the techniques that I'd picked up from my recent 'watercolor' and 'dichro' experiments, and I'm proud to say that THIS was what I'd been picturing when I started the whole endeavor - a pure black backdrop with opalescent shimmer on top, and no cloudy areas. I'm so happy with how this little guy turned out! I'll have to make him some friends at some point. :]
Crafted from colored Premo polymer clay and Swarovski crystal elements. Sold.

Beautiful work as always, keep it up!
