Black and Gold Sparkle Oriental Dragon by SweetMayDreams Black and Gold Sparkle Oriental Dragon by SweetMayDreams
Oh my gosh guys, the hair on this fella!! He's just so...FLUFFY! lol.  There's just something about this color combo I love...I was finally fortunate enough to find Premo's black clay with gold flecks in it and I just had to make something big and elaborate out of it.  Def a labor of love Love Kinda hard to see, but there's a clear glass marble under his chin too Giggle 

I will probably have this for sale in the future Heart

Made of Premo Sculpy and is 4" tall and 4" long

I sure would like to have a dragon like this from you. If you wanted to trade one day, what kind of dragon would you want from me, for a guy like this one?

Sorry for late reply ^^; I wont do trades for sculpts this large and intricate due to their super time intensive nature. I'm very busy with orders. But I'd do a trade sometime with you for one of my smaller dragons :) If interested send me a note!

I love the color on him.
And his mane, is extremely beautiful.
My biggest question (which I'm sure you've answered before) is how you do that voluminous mane?
Reply
:iconsweetmaydreams:
SweetMayDreams Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Oh thank you!! The mane is lots and lots of clay cones and equal amounts of patience. Can be very frustrating when you accidentally bend them out of place, which happens often. ;) (Wink) It's definitely the most challenging aspect of a sculpture like this for me!

Questioooon. I've tried doing piece similar to this with smaller spines but the spines always risk being broken so easily! Do you have any tips for making sturdier spines other than a million pieces of wire? ;w; Ty!
Reply
:iconsweetmaydreams:
SweetMayDreams Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yeahhhh, spines always run the risk of breakage...But there are ways to minimize the chance, besides just not dropping it of course ^_^ The type of clay can help a lot.  I've found Premo Sculpy to be one of the best in that area, if it does break, it's clean and easy to fix. But in general it's pretty sturdy. So I use that and haven't had a problem. Super Sculpy is decent, but more prone to breaking if knocked around at all, especially smaller bits. Same for Sculpy III. If you're really paranoid, like me lol, Sculpy makes a bake-able glue that works really well too!

:iconskyelark:
Skyelark Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014
;w; Yeah I use the glue and super sculpey because it's the firmest when you're sculpting while still being maliable unlike fimo for me. That and the texture of fimo has always turned out really rubbery for me. So hard finding the right way to do some of these ;x;
