hi,

I am making a dragon and she is white, which is the only color clay I have.  I want to add purple accents to her, but am unsure how to...any ideas?  I am not sure how gluing would be.  When baking the clay it doesn't come exactly white, more of an off-white, so if I were to just stick the purple accents directly on the clay, I'd need to paint around them.  And they are small.  Not really detailed, they're just little raised poka-dots.  Any suggestions? Thanks!

I may be misunderstanding you.  Are you painting the whole dragon? In that case you can just paint the purple accents.  If you're not painting the whole thing you could still paint the accents or you can tint the clay with oil paints or pastels. Good luck!
