I had some leftover faux turquoise clay and decided to make a dragon based on veins of turquoise running through stone. I was originally thinking of using my gray stone-textured clay as the base color, but after looking at a few pictures of natural turquoise, I decided to go with a darker bronze instead. Since the faux turquoise clay has hints of copper in it, I used some additional copper foil for the accents. I don't like how the foil flaked on the horns and wings, but I do like the little pieces that I added around the edges of the turquoise sections. I wish I'd had an actual piece of turquoise for the dragon to hold, but since I didn't, I used a little piece of tumbled quartz instead.
Crafted from Premo polymer clay, beads, copper gilding foil, various dusts, inks and paints, plus a piece of quartz. This dragon has been sold.
