Mkay, here they are. They're made out of sculpey, btw.

The first one I made... you can see how I attached tail and neck and head separately. I don't remember when I made this, but it was a LONG time ago, at least 7 or 8 years.




The fourth or fifth one I made.. (two or possibly three of the first dragons I made broke)


My faaaaavorite one. Isn't she purdy? I dunno about the brown one behind her.

OH I should mention any of them in red or reddish shades are male, anything greenish is female. I go kinda crazy with the colors, it's fun!

Here are some of the largest dragons... still quite small, but when I'm mixing clay that's about as large as is an easy amount to blend. The green-gold on the bottom left is the very first dragon I made when I moved into our new house.. I like her. Even though she's shimmery. (WHY did I do that!?) The little nubs in the carpet are about the size of a dime.






The One With The Twisted Wings. Heh. I have NO idea what happened there.

Here's the color range so far.... I'm hoping to make a VERY dark red dragon that's almost black, but so far they tend to look purple or pink instead. I can't seem to get a very dark red yet.

Yes, he's pink. It was an accident...


OH I forgot this one... she's in a really weird position, with her forelegs on her tail.

BABY DRAGONS! With a big one to show you how tiny they are. I had one with my thumb in it to show the size even better, but it didn't load. The pink one is the first baby dragon I ever attempted, and the only reason he's pink is because I ran out of red. Recently I put like 3 hours of effort into making these awesome baby dragons... 5-8 of them.. and accidentally put the oven temperature too high and burnt them. Charred, actually. They were little dracling char-burgers. It was so depressing... *sigh*


HATCHLINGS! These things are sooooo tiny.. like they can get themselves wedged under your nail sort of tiny, lol.


I have something like 60 of these little dragons.. making them is my weird version of stress relief. Sometimes I just mix clay for future dragons instead of actually making them, lol. They're not anything particularly special, but they ARE very cute. Except to the cats, who are attracted to them as if they are catnip... they EAT them! Seriously! Emma likes to crush them in her teeth and eat the little shards.. ugh.

I have more, there are currently 7 of them that I no longer own... two of them were practically masterpieces. One was on a quartz rock, clinging to it, another on an amethyst, sitting on it. They were marbled different shades of color, had nice limbs right down to perfect little claws and had flames coming out of their mouths. I'm such an idiot for not taking pictures before I gave them to my friends... they blow all the other dragons away.

Here is one I did for school, it's the biggest dragon I have and was hell to make.





It's.. huge. LOL. Almost two inches tall and three or so inches long..

I LOVE this one! If you can make it come to life I will give you $57485473927642967658794.68 for it.

And the head on the last one, holy pooperoni, it's gorgeous! (reminds me of the dragon from Eragon kinda)

You HAVE to name the pink one ORSON! :D And that last one is fabulous. Marvelous.

Love 'em. I know how hard it is to mix and knead Sculpey to get the colors blended :eek: It absolutely wears my hands OUT.

Have you tried making yourself a wire armature to build them around?

I can't make it come to life, Lauren... LOL... I can make one like it for you, if you want, though. :D

OMG.. Name him Orson?? PERFECT.

Yep, sculpey wears them out. I had one point in time where I was doing so much of it that it became easy, though. but what I do is mix colors when I'm too frustrated to actually make the dragons, so when I just feel like jumping in and making them I have it ready! And no, I haven't tried that. I want to. I just don't know how and would need help, or some really good diagrams/pictorial how-tos. The big one has tin foil bones, especially on the wing, base of tail, body, and part of the neck. It makes her a LOT lighter!

Those are so cute! I think I'll be getting the Sculpey out tomorrow!

Ha, I've done that. I was all excited to see my lovely new creation, and when I opened the oven everything was a yucky bubbly black. I was sad, lol.

I LOVE this one! If you can make it come to life I will give you $57485473927642967658794.68 for it.
Okay, uh, if nolu isn't going to take you up on this offer, I will! :D

I would if I could. I'd keep a few myself though!

Thanks to you guys.. I felt creative enough today to make another! WOOHOO! It's really nothing special, kind of awkward-looking, but fun to make. I want to make a couple that a fitted so they can hang on places.. specifially the tunnel on the train layout. I think it'd be cool to have a dragon clinging to the entrance of the tunnel! I did it on rocks, so I figure the tunnel wont be too big of a stretch.
