I made a lot of the colored, metal-flecked clay that I used for my last dragon. Enough to make a second one! While the previous space dragon had colors ranging from yellow to green, blue and purple, this one just had flecks of green and blue, so I decided to make a water-themed dragon, resulting in big finned wings and a cute finned tail tip. I used green and blue super chameleon flakes on the fins for an enchanting, metallic shine. The colors work so well together! Depending on the angle, the green shifts to gold and the blue shifts to purple, so you get a ton of color - super pretty. ^^ I added a pearl for the dragon to guard as I thought she needed a deep sea treasure to call her own.

Crafted from polymer clay, gilding foil, alcohol ink, Solar Color Dust's super chameleon flakes, glass beads, and a Swarovski crystal pearl. Sold at Otakon 2018.

Want to see how I make my dragons? My next sculpting stream is tonight from 7-10pm PDT. Come by and join the fun!

My mother actually discovered your dragons a few years back and you're one of the inspirations that led her into polymer clay sculpting, at the age of 57.  : ) This is some of the stuff she does now:  More Helios and Chibi Usa by rlfrenr12345
Thanks again for sharing your art and inspiring her to create. : )

Fortunately the clay has a bit of give to it, so they can bend a bit before breaking. If you tried to break it, it would definitely do so, but I'm always hopeful that no one's going to try that on purpose. ^^;
