Another dragon!

This little guy is for sale on Etsy:  Fire Dragon

The claws and horns are made from polymer clay. The tape is just to hold things into position until I can get felt around them.

My dragon wings are made from wire, glue, tissue paper, and paint. I love how leathery they turn out.

All of the clay bits are hand painted.

Just trying the wings on to make sure I’ve sized things correctly. I don’t add them permanently until I am almost finished. They are hard to work around!

Eyes! They are glued into place until I can secure them with felt.

Another “dry fit” to make sure I’m still on the right track.

Starting to add color. I use a quick felting undyed roving for the sculpture, only added dyed roving at the end.
