Turquois Oriental Dragon by SweetMayDreams Turquois Oriental Dragon by SweetMayDreams
This is one of my favorite creations to date! Mostly because of the color combination; that blue/green peacock color is just so shimmery and vibrant when glazed! I made this one as a companion to my green dragon, also in my gallery, and they both sit side by side on a shelf. :) (Smile)

Approx 3.5" tall and 5.5" long. Made of Premo Sculpy.

Do you buy your clay online or in a store? I can't seem to find any large-pack coloured clay anywhere, except for SuperSculpey. I really love how well your creations turn out... I wish to be at a standard of yours someday :)

I get mine in a store, they're the 2 oz packages :) I think they sell larger packs of black and white, but that's pretty much it in the way of colors XD
And thanks so much! That means a lot to me!! :) Just practice, practice, practice! :D

Umm...Usually it depends on the theme I'm going for, but sometimes I just hold clay blocks up and judge how well they compliment each other :D Or I'll just create my own colors by mixing and then matching.

That's interesting, so you base your colors upon the mood of your pick. So for example, a romantic piece would be, ah, pink, orange and violet?

Have you tried make more challenging pieces?
Say, for example, ah, a dragon holding a lion? 

-or-
I don't know, a dragon with a burger sword? 

Anyway, I'm starting to sound weird here.. soo.. :) yeah... :)

The clay itself has some slight shimmer to it, then I just enhance it with glaze :) Lol, the pearl does look like it has a little light in it, but that's just the camera flash. XD  The pearl is a clear glass marble!
