Sleeping Jade and Wood Dragon

435 Favourites

Fimo has a Jade color in its Effect line, and while it doesn't have an authentic stone look, it is very much in line with my imagined 'fantasy jade'. It's a beautiful bright, translucent green with hints of gold shimmer within. The funny thing is that I had a block of this clay sitting on my desk for months, but I'd been reluctant to use it because the unbaked color is very pale and uninteresting and there's no hint of the gold shimmer unless you're really looking for it. I had no idea it would change so much in the oven!

For this dragon, I paired the green clay with two shades of gold for a layered, woodsy look (these colors work so well together, I love it!). Mini pearls and hoop earrings added for extra luxury.

Crafted from Fimo and Premo polymer clay, jump rings, Swarovski crystal pearls.

All about that green

Aw, thanks, I like them too. I need to work on getting their bodies looking a bit more relaxed, I think. ^^

Your jade dragons are really cute! I love the wood texture on this one

Thanks, the wood texture is really speaking to me right now. It was pretty much a complete accident too, but I'm glad I stumbled upon it. xD

No problem! Ah yes through those accidents something beautiful is discovered. Nice!

How do you bake two different clays together? Doesn't Fimo have a lower baking temperature? Does it not burn at the higher temp, or do you bake it for longer at the lower temp?

The temperature difference between Premo and Fimo is 10 degrees (like 275 vs 265), so they might as well be the same. Just make sure your oven doesn't overheat and you'll be fine.
