In late July I will be sculpting beaks and claws, casting and have them finished for Gryphons in August-September. I also will be painting moth and butterfly designs to have printed on fabric to use for future wings.
As for sewing, I’ll have more dragons sewn for July, and I have an idea for a Gryphon shoulder harness pattern to tweak. And it’s time to start the Halloween bat dragons!
This is Malbec – (named for the wine), she is a Burgundy Pixie Dragon
Pixie dragons are very fast, and are often trained and ridden by the Fae. The 4 winged Pixie dragons are highly prized for their speed and agility.
I’m at the painting stage, all their sculpted faces are getting their nubs.
Then comes the assembly, and finishing.
It will take at least a week for the paint to cure properly, then will list them.
Just finished Hemlock and he is listed on Dragontry, my Etsy site
This is Hemlock, I choose this name because he reminds me of being in a deep forest with morning sunlight coming through the canopy, Hemlock is such a magical dragon.
Artisan crafted from a green, teal and brown tie dye swirl lycra velvet fabric for his body. I chose a brown lycra velvet for his back spine, belly, and spiral wrapped horns. I used a midnight green Lycra velvet for his under wings and inner ears.
Hemlock has a dark green fox fur mane and bright teal eyes.
I added 3 teal shell nose horns, and used a teal texture paint for his face nubs and claws.
This has been a brutal winter, but as of March 15th the snow is almost gone, just a few piles in the shade. Yay!
I won’t need to have a heated blanket on to work anymore.
