This is Suminagashi – a Ryder Dragon.

I love this fabric, and the striped boa. I sold Sumin in 2016.  I really need to find more of this ostrich boa and make myself one like this,

This is Suminagashi – (Sumin for short), … She is an amazing Ryder Dragon.

Once I found this black and white Lycra velvet fabric, I was trying to come up with the perfect name, I looked at types of paper marbling, and loved “Suminagashi.

( “The first forms of Japanese marbling were called Suminagashi, or “ink floating”. Delicate, swirled patterns were produced on paper when colors of ink were floated on the surface of the water. The artist would drop circles of black and indigo blue ink into the water, then blow gently on the surface of the water to produce smoke-like patterns. Marbling later became popular with members of the Japanese royal court. They used a slightly different technique to produce Suminagashi. They would decorate paper with sumi-ink then immerse the paper in water. As the inks floated to the surface, beautiful patterns would appear.”)

I used a black Lycra velvet fabric for her under wings and spiral wrapped horns – and back spine points.

Suminagashi’s mane is from the last of a black and white Ostrich boa, I had been saving for a special dragon.

She has pale blue eyes with black velvet eye lids, a wooden name tag, bell and a white collar.

I used a black texture paint for her face nubs and claws.

Happy July 4th

Rowen has found his new home, and will be heading there soon.

Almost the 4th of July…wow where has the summer gone ?

Currently I’m dog sitting  (Luci, my daughter’s family dog) while they are on a trip.   Both Luci and Druid are terrified of fireworks, last night there were so many fireworks going off it sounded like a war zone. Both doggies had their medication and thankfully slept in until 7am.

I will be listing dragons next week,  on the  6th….these will likely be the last dragons until September.

I have plans to create a “dragon Pattern” to sell in 2018… I’m going to start with the Nipper since it is retired.  If it takes off then I’ll progress to other patterns of dragons and mythological creatures.

I hear PDF patterns are popular, but paper ones will be available too.
