Silver Glitter Candy Cane Dragon

This is a bit out of season, but it was too cute not to share. After making my previous Snowy Scarf Dragon, I wanted to take another shot at the chunky knitted scarf, since I thought I could make some improvements to my original attempt. This time around, I went for a smoother textured gold clay, and I added a tiny fringe onto the ends. I am quite happy with the results!

For the dragon, I went with one of my favorite clay colors - silver glitter. It's so beautiful and shimmery once glazed. I also gave the dragon a candy cane and some mistletoe accents for a little extra holiday cheer.

This dragon has found a home, but you can still visit her Etsy listing to view additional photos.

Ooh, the silvery glitter is gorgeous :D especially paired with the red. Not a colour combination usually seen but gorgeous none the less. And you brought back the scarf :)! I love all of the intricate details of it. Also that candy cane is great!

Yeah, I usually pair red with gold because they're such warm colors, but red and silver is fun to play with every now and then!
Gotta make more scarves. I love 'em. xD

Red and gold is such a nice colour combination but it's always cool to see other combinations too :). And you should! We love them too :D!

I'm definitely more of a silver person than a gold person, so any excuse to use silver is fine by me. :D
