Dragon Family

dragon family picture For my brother's wedding with his fiancee in the summer of 2002, my girlfriend and I wanted to make something special. She created the wedding figures for the top of the wedding cake. Together we created a dragon family on a mountain. I made the dragon figures and mountain, and she painted it all.

It became a race against time because I started a bit late and had to work on the project almost every evening to get it done in time.

In the picture besides you can see the dragon hoard.

I've had my share of dragons for the moment, it will be a long time before sculpting another dragon...but you'll never know, sometimes a great idea pops up and lets you grab pen and paper to sketch and create...see the polymer clay course if you're planning to model dragons yourself and want to have some tips.
