Blue-Green Dragon by CMWyvern Blue-Green Dragon by CMWyvern
:EDIT:
This guy is now sold!!! I'm so excited, this is the first posable I have sold!! (No, the etsy store isn't up yet, I sold this dragon to somebody I met irl)
:end edit:

Here is another dragon very similar in design to Fire Dragon fav.me/d678ft7. I liked my Fire Dragon's face so much I decided to make another one... he's a slight bit different, mainly because I did not actaully have Fire Dragon with me at the time I was sculpting this one.

This time, however, I have found a paint for the fur that actually sticks!!!!!!!! This paint is a joy to use and does not gum up or stiffen the fur at all, even if I forget to brush it out while it's drying. I did not have any real plan for his coloration and markings, I just started painting and this is what I got! (And no, I do not use an airbrush)

Blue-Green Dragon is about 25" long, including his tail. He is fully posable, with polymer clay head, feet, and spikes, and a body of wire, quilt batting, and faux fur. He has spikes along his back, but none on his tail as does Fire Dragon. (They where a pain to put on, a pain to paint around, used a lot of clay, and I wasn't sure I even liked them, that is why.)

The colors and exotic appearance of the creature instantly reminded me of fauna that would live on Pandora in the movie 'Avatar".

I was just thinking about the 'Avatar' idea. The creatures in that movie had bio luminescence. If you were able to add LED lights as a component to your dolls it would give them a dramatic effect at night. I could see where children would get a kick out of that you might even have a blazing new toy line that could be marketed.

That would indeed be very cool! There is something innately fascinating about things that glow.

Do you sculpt it out clay and then cut the clay into a pattern then sew the piece together and then stuff and paint it.

No, I haven't done pattern-making that way, but I've heard of it.

Wow, I am really impressed by your work! Just amazing! Wonder how you managed to dye the fur of the dragon, so may I ask what kind of paint you used for it? I have been looking for the right method to dye faux fur, but with no reliable results...

It's a secret now, though the product I use is not hard to find (in the US anyway.)

It's a kind of spray paint for use on fabric.

Wow, this guy is just fantastic!  I love what you've done with the colors and thank you so much for sharing the paint that you used!  I had no idea that it was even possible to faint white fur to look like that.  Simply stunning!

So beautiful! Ive tried all sorts of paint to marking fur like that for my cosplays like for RED 13 from FF 7 but i cant get it right and air brusing is to expensive. May i ask what paint you used for the markings?

This is simply gorgeous! The fur just BLENDS into the head & paws, it's jaw dropping! Did you paint those eyes, or are they fake eyes? Can I ask you a few questions? (I read in the comments that you didn't attach the head to the wire & that it is hollow) so how did you attach it ? I've seen some people bake the head then glue it to the wire (but that was a tutorial of a full head, not hollow) & then others bake with it attached to the wire (molded ontop of tin foil that was wrapped around the wire). I'm just trying to get some ideas. Also, what color fur was it you had ? Did you paint the entire thing (like it was a white fur coat previously)? Sorry if I'm being nosey, any tips would be really appreciated.

Thank you! A successful merge between the fur and clay is very important to me.
Yes, I painted the eyes; they are clay too.
I did make the head (which is more or less hollow) then glue it to the wire.
The fur I've been using so far is white. I am going to try using precolored furs in the future, as there are some things I do not like about the results with white fur.

Alright thank you ^_^ & yah I'm just making my first & I'm rather nervous about putting the fur on. I thought that would be the easiest part, but so far I'm not even sure how to really go about it. But I must admit that sculpting clay is a big pain in the butt lol.

So was I on my first one. You just have to go for it. The fur is generally quite forgiving. You have to do a really, really, really bad job for the seams to show.

What type of clay did you use?
