Sassy Dash by HowManyDragons Sassy Dash by HowManyDragons
I don't really like this rendition as much as my last one, as I made it her somewhat of a rush, hence the folded wings and somewhat stumpy legs. I have pretty much settled on dragon!Dash looking like this, and since she looks so similar to the last version, I was considering not posting her up... But then I did anyway. You can't ever have too much Rainbow Dash, am I right?

Rainbow Dash has been sold.

She looks gorgeous! What a talent you have for making these! You inspire me to try too :heart: (If I could just get my clay out of the fridge ^^'')

 I like how the eye looks in the picture :3 Did you use a bead for it?

(Also, what kind of clay do you use? I'm obsessed with watching this type of thing but I don't even know if I have the right clay)

You should try! Sculpting is fun. :3

Yes, I use glass bugle beads for my dragons' eyes. For just about everything else, I use colored oven-bake polymer clay - Premo for the most part, but with the occasional foray into Sculpey III and the Michaels Craftsmart brand.

You keep your clay in the fridge? What kind are you using? I just store mine in a couple boxes at room temperature.

I want too :heart: The last thing I made was a puppy for my sister. But the clay was air dry brand and the thing got all dusty and crumbly. Eck.

Ah. I see. I've heard that polymer is the kind to get. But I wasn't sure where...I guess I'll be taking a trip to Micheals pretty soon :D

Pfft, Fridge. Where has my mind gone? Sorry, I meant to say closet :XD: The stuff that I was planning on using was the sort from Crayola. The stuff that comes in a pack with the colors of the rainbow and you can buy at staples or WalMart. Is there anything I could do with that? It's been the only kind I've seen besides the grey air dry stuff that I don't like. Hopefully there's a use for it....

Yup, Michaels will have polymer clay for sure, but you should be able to find it in just about any craft store.

Is the Crayola clay non-drying modeling clay? I'm not sure what use it has, aside from being reusable. :shrug:

Great! Looks like i'll be shopping soon! ^^

I'm pretty sure it says that on the package. (I haven't seen it in forever so I could be wrong) I guess you could still make figures and things, but I doubt you could bake it. Hmm....Maybe for experimenting with shapes and stuff before you use the actually polymer clay? Oh by the way, could you give me a range of how much it costs? Is it very expensive?

It's a bit pricey, maybe about $2-3 per 2 oz. package, depending on the brand you get. So if you want to get lots of colors, it adds up fast. I work pretty small, though, so a little bit of clay goes a long way for me.

You might be tempted to spring for Sculpey III instead of Premo, due to the price difference, and that's probably fine if you're just getting started, but I'd like to point out that Sculpey is more brittle and likely to break after being baked. It's something to think about, especially if you're thinking of selling your work.

Awww I love it when you do the all-fours standing poses, something about the back feet just tickles me to death, they are soooooo cute! ^.^

I love the shade of blue you used on this one. :)

Hehe, thanks! I should do more standing poses, but sometimes it's a struggle to keep the dragon from falling over or from leaning to one side. So I tend to be lazy and avoid it. xD

I hear you! I am much more comfortable with sitting/laying down positions myself as well. I get worried about my standing ones being unstable and end up spending way too much time checking/balancing them over and over as well as checking while baking for fear something will fall over and then be stuck that way. :p

Side note: I hope you do continue to make the standings from time to time as I would truly love to collect a piece from all my friends from DA eventually and I adore these! ^.^ Huggle!

It sounds like you know how I feel, then. The only difference is that I rush to put things in the oven and then am afraid to look at them when they're done baking in case something went wrong. I'm sitting there with my fingers crossed every time I bake. xP

Oh, there will be more standing dragons! My stock of them has been depleted, so it's yet another item on my list of things to sculpt. xD

Her cutie mark is painted on with acrylic, and her eyes are glass beads, but yes, the rest is made out of colored oven-bake polymer clay. :)
I usually use the Premo brand of clay, but for Rainbow Dash, I used Michael's Craftsmart brand because it comes in just the right shade of blue.
