This was made for the %CRArtisanCrafts September challenge
- the theme was winged creatures, and I figured this was a chance to make a dragon with some fancy wings! I've been wanting to make a fire-themed dragon using translucent clay for ages, so I finally sat down to do it. Also, to mix things up a bit, I decided to make a wyvern based on a bat! Mostly because I wanted to do bigger wings and cute little fangs. xD It was quite a challenge to get everything to come together on this piece, and I enjoyed trying to get a fiery look out of my clay. This guy was subject to several experiments, so it was a useful learning experience too.
Aaanyway, after making this guy, I noticed that #BuyHandmade
is also holding a contest, based on the four elements, and that got me thinking... and sculpting! I went a little bit crazy on that front, and I'm really excited to share the other elemental dragons that I've made, but I need to do some glazing and photographing first. :3
