My Little Pony-dragons: Crystal Rarity by HowManyDragons My Little Pony-dragons: Crystal Rarity by HowManyDragons
Okay, season 3 was kind of underwhelming, but I did love the crystal pony designs. I totally had to make a crystal Rarity! :heart:

She is made entirely out of translucent clay, which looks really awesome, especially when she's held up to the light (I looooove the purple translucent SO much!). Also, I solved my unicorn horn dilemma - since I think unicorn-type horns look silly on my dragons, why not just give them spiraled regular horns? I think it's much better than not giving them horns at all. C:

This has to be my favorite out of all of your dragons so far. Translucent clay looks good on Rarity ;) please do more like this!

Also, do you have a tutorial on how to make sculptures like this? I wouldn't mind giving it a go!

Thanks! There will definitely be more translucent dragons at some point. :)

I've been wanting to put together a tutorial on just that subject, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Hopefully I'll have the chance to do something on that end soon.

These are really amazing! :D I love the amount of detailed simplicity you put into these (LOL sorry did that make sense?? They're simple but some of the small simple things in them have like a ton of detail behind them (IDK :P))

Aw, thanks! They do look kind of simple, but a lot of work goes into each one! :)

Ugh. Translucent clay is such a pain to work with. I can never get it soft enough.

Yeah, the Premo brand, at least, tends to stay kind of crumbly. I haven't found it to be unworkable, though. What brand are you using?

It's Premo Sculpey.

You could try adding some liquid clay/softener - might hold things together better.

I actually found out that the clay doesn't soften in larger amounts like normal clay. I sort of went up slowly in quantity and it worked fine. But thank you anyways :)

how much do your figurines sell for?

It depends on the piece. Basic premades start at $20, and custom work starts at $30. Fanart dragons tend to be pricier because I put extra time and effort into them.

It's translucent polymer clay - I use Premo, but I think most other polymer clay brands have a translucent version too. It becomes kind of see-through when it's baked. I think it looks really awesome! I love tinting it all sorts of colors. x3

OOOH. sweet i have both of them. i completely forgot about translucent clay. what's paper clay? i went to a flea market, and there were these super neon-bright colors, and i said, what are these made from? and she said, polymer clay mixed with paper clay.

She's made out of translucent polymer clay. It's like regular polymer clay, except when you bake it, it becomes slightly see-through. It's a really neat effect!
