About Me




HowManyDragons / Lindy
Sculptor / Digital Artist / Graphic Designer


Hi there! I'm Lindy, and I like to make little dragon figurines. I use Premo polymer clay for the most part, with the occasional foray into other brands. I sculpt, then bake my creations in the oven to harden them. All dragons are then signed and sealed with a gloss glaze. I do the occasional detailing with paint and mica powder, but for the most part, my dragons get their color from the clay that I use. My sculptures average two inches tall.

I do draw too! However, I have (questionably) split my work across two DA accounts. Clay dragon and convention-related goods reside here, while my (abandoned) 2D art can be found at FlykyrSkysong. If you're interested in behind-the-scenes type stuff, you can take a look at my Facebook page too!

I was perusing your Etsy store and noted that your lowest price is $35.00 .. Do you have a really high overhead? or a large profit margin?
I was wondering because I love your work (honest), but the prices seem a bit high to me. I respect that there is a cost for the time spent and the materials invested, but still I would like to know why they are THAT expensive..

Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.

Hey there! My materials cost is low, but it takes a substantial amount of time to make a single dragon - a couple of hours at least, and it can take much longer for the more complex ones. I find it challenging to price my own artwork, and it's something that I'm still trying to figure out.

Thanks for contacting me - I find feedback like yours to be very helpful. I've reassessed my prices and marked down most of the older dragons in my Etsy shop. I will also be adding new sculptures soon.

I see. Indeed, making models with any measure of quality will result in large amounts of time being invested. Especially when doing tedious work or working on a very small scale.

Again, I do like your work and appreciate your devotion to your art. And also, If I had a lot of money available, I would have bought at your original prices. 

Further, I think custom work should be more expensive than stock models (pre-determined model, color, ect...) I dont remember whether or not your price for custom work was higher.. :)

Glad you found my feedback helpful. And I look forward to seeing more of your work. :)Love I am a dummy!

Oh, I definitely charge more for commissioned work. Custom dragons tend to take much more time and effort to make than my 'regular' dragons because I work very hard to follow the reference images and other specifications.

I'll get back to posting more dragons soon! Gotta get more photos prepped tonight so that I have something to post tomorrow. :)
