Brass Dragon

518 Favourites
Commission inspired by the Dungeons and Dragons version of a brass dragon. The large, sail-like wings were a challenge. I had to scale them down somewhat, and it was tricky to fit all of the pieces together. I loved the idea of the bronze-to-gold-to-green color gradient, but I didn't pull it off as well as I would have liked. On the other hand, I really like the unusual horns and belly plates.

Handmade out of colored polymer clay and mica pigment, glass bead eyes.

how much did this cost to make?
HowManyDragons's avatar
That one was $60, due to the pose, detail and coloring.

What kind of paint is that?
HowManyDragons's avatar
No paint! Just colored clay and a little mica pigment (it's a metallic-looking powder that I brush onto raw clay).

Before reading the title I looked at it and thought of the DnD brass dragon! You did really well in making this one! Would you be making ones of the other metallic dragons?

Thank you! I make metallic-colored dragons pretty often, but I don't usually base them off of other designs unless someone commissions me to.
