Chalice

Silver Reivers 9-29-15 019

This is Chalice, – a Silver Reiver Dragon, Artisan hatched

Chalice’s body fabric is a Metallic Silver Lycra velvet, for the under color and back spine I used a Silver lycra fabric. I used a pewter texture paint for her claws and face nubs.
She has a White Fox fur mane, shell horns, white opal eyes, a black leather lead, nose ring, bell and a name tag – Chalice is a very eye catching young dragon!

The shell horns are sewn in place, glued, then edged with a pewter texture paint.

Chalice has sold and will be nesting in the UK

I hadn’t used glass sewn on eyes before, but was willing to give them a try for a special request from a lovely dragon owner, she picked out the eyes and had them sent to me. I had to tweak the sculpting a bit, but I do love the way they look.

Crimson

I love the way these reivers turned out, the red boa with long ostrich strands of red and black stripes, really make them stand out.  And the scale pattern of the fabric is so varied, they each have their own look.

So much to do…so little time…

Ok, I’m finally back to working on Dragontry,

I’ve been  stuffing, sculpting and painting the next batch of dragons – 4 Reivers, 3 guardians, a Percher, and a Royal.

I’ve started the Fall orders – a tiger Drat, a teal Percher, and a special Reiver. The first two I have confirmed are still wanted. The Reiver may be an orphan, and will stay waiting in her egg until I can confirm she is still wanted.

I’ve started the 12 Holiday nippers that will be done in late November.
5 leopards
3 blacks
1 green/ black
1 red/ black
1 gold
1 silver

Wish me luck and fewer distractions!  Although I think a cider mill is calling me…
