The fun with inks continues! I've made a lot of ink dragons with white or translucent clay as the base, but I was sitting at my desk and staring at my white pearl clay and started thinking, "Hm, I haven't tried that one yet..."
I ended up going with cool colors on white pearl clay and I just love the result! The colors are bright and vibrant, as I'd expect, but there's a gorgeous pearly shine underneath. This is one of those pieces that I just can't stop picking up and admiring. It's so pretty and shimmery in the light.
The blues and purples made me want to go with an aquatic theme, so I turned this into a seaweed dragon. Hints of gold shimmer among the green accents, and iridescent bubbles nestle among the fronds that make up the horns, wings and tail. A pale green pearl rounds out the look.
