Sleeping Green and Pink Book Dragon

This little dragon was studying hard, but she got so sleepy and had to close her eyes for just a moment... Now she's curled up comfortably, head resting right on the pages of her book. This dragon's hide is a black base, but you'd be forgiven for overlooking it, because her back is covered in bright metallic scales that shift from pink to green, depending on the angle of the light. To match these brilliant colors, her accents are a mix of bright pink and light green. To accessorize, she wears a pair of pink and green bands around her tail, as well as a mismatched pair of pink and green earrings.

I made this dragon during one of my recent Twitch streams, and she ended up being a fun, semi-collaborative piece. I incorporated a couple of ideas that I probably wouldn't have otherwise, like the double pair of wings and the tail decorations. I love that pink and green combination so much - I've been wanting to make something with those clay colors for ages. This dragon is really fun to pick up and admire in the light - the color shift is intense!


Crafted from polymer clay, chameleon flakes, and Swarovski crystal elements. About 3 inches long.

This dragon is looking for a home! Please visit her Etsy listing to view sales information and additional photos.

Those sweet, sweet chameleon flakes

A neon dragon! That's so cool :). The green and pink highlights go super well with the vivid colours on her back. I love the double set of wings and the bright eyeliner. Really unique.
Also, I can definitely relate to falling asleep on a book like that =P.

Hehe, we were joking on stream about how they were slap bracelets since she's in totally 90s colors. xD

Nice! Didn't know slap bracelets originated in the 90s--guess I thought they had existed forever when I was younger ^^

Oh, I actually have no idea when they were first invented, but they were a huge, huge fad when I was in early elementary school. So yeah, early 90s. :)

You should make a dragon small enough to sleep on an open book...

Hehe, I make them sleeping on closed books all the time. Haven't tried on an open one yet...
