I know, I've made and shown these before, but I think they're so cool Smiley I'm really pleased to be able to duplicate them so well.

Gorgeous! How big are they? Is the eye polymer clay as well? I want to know how come the stuff I put mica on doesn't look like that dammit!! *stamps feet*

I'm a little sad about what happened to the rest of the dragon now.. :-(

Howdy...Great work.  Would there be a vendor or type of Mica powder that you would recommend?  Thx!

lol Poor dragon. Eye is glass. I think they're about 4" long. I don't know why your mica pieces don't come out looking like this, I seem to have a knack for it though, so don't get discouraged!

I use pearlex powders  Grin

They are lovely :-) I suppose practice is the key! I seem to have taken to crochet lately which I never imagined I would. Do you bake them in parts or all in one go?

Thanks both of you  Grin

I'd say practice is the key and I'm sure it is for some, but I think I'm something of a natural for this, having gone form my first piece this spring to where I am now, that's been awhile now...maybe it was practice lol.

I have baked things in parts, but most everything I make is made all at once. The eyes and wings, all at once.

Wow- you really got a talent there! Do you use any particular colours of clay and then cover in pearl-ex or does it hide the original colour? I have a friend who I'm thinking would love one of your pieces but probably attached to the rest of the dragon ;-)

lol on the rest of the dragon!  I think if I did a whole dragon it would be huge! All of these were made using different blend of green . I do use black clay a lot for steampunk pieces.
