Rainbow Pearl Dragon by HowManyDragons Rainbow Pearl Dragon by HowManyDragons
Here's my latest commission! The client requested a pearly white dragon with rainbow accents that was styled after my Prince of Fire dragon. She is similarly oversized, and stands nearly three inches tall, instead of the usual two inches. She's holding a really pretty piece of dichroic glass, and her accents are a blended rainbow gradient. Boy, that was a challenge - figuring out how to blend all those colors together so that they'd all fit on something as small as a wing. I wasn't able to get the blends super smooth due to the limited amount of space, but I like the slightly swirled look that I ended up with, plus I think the colors look beautiful all together like that. I wasn't going to use a color blend for the horns, but I had some leftover clay so why not? In the end, it all worked out. Happy maker, happy customer, it's all good. :)

I make all of my dragons out of colored, oven-bake polymer clay. You can find it for sale in your local craft store. The brand I like to use is called Premo. :]

That is lovely!
I like how the dragon has a very strong style.
I don't need to say I loved that wings and also the horns!
Great combination.
The dicroic glass has an amazing look too.
And I think the pearl was a grat idea, imuch better than pure white.
Congratulations on the DD!

Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment!
And my not-so-secret secret is that I try to avoid working with pure white whenever possible. But in this case, the commissioner's ref suggested the color palette. =P

Also, geez, why am I not watching you? I love seeing your pieces whenever they pop up in my groups.

Oh yes! White polymer clay seems to get dirty very easily. I already tried to work with polymer clay but gave up for a while.
It get so many dirt even I clean everything around many times!!
Oh that happens, I am asking the same XD
Really? That makes me very happy to know =3
