So I'm trying to make a dragon-like thing. ._.



What needs to be fixed? How do I add texture? I have a feeling I may mess it up if I try with a toothpick. D:

Well, all I can really say is that it looks like he has no bottom jaw. Look around on the internet for some pictures and sculptures of dragons to get a better idea on what the shape should look like.

And as for textures, I've never used polymer clay, but probably just about anything will work. If you want to get teeny little hand done textures, a toothpick or needle will probably work.

Also, he would probably look cooler with a small horn on the snout, and some smaller spikes leading up to the two on the back of his head.

There are a lot of ways to make texture on raw polymer clay, and various ways to make scales, etc, in particular too, some of which involve texturing.

You might want to check out some of the lessons and photo examples I have or have linked to from these pages at my site:

http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/sculpting_body_and_tools.htm
(... click at least on Scales...)

http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/sculpture.htm
(....click at least on Websites, then look for the lessons and photos for "dragons" under the first section called Lessons, etc....and also look in Websites under Whimsical...)

Hi,
You can use stamps or anything that has some texture to add some to your dragon, don't be afraid of messing up, the clay is very forgiving. You have to start somewhere, right? I agree that you should look around and find photos that you can refer to. Good luck!
Regards,
Ilysa
