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.
Doing 1 dragon is fun, doing 4 is a headache. The small, just out the
egg was the most fun to do. He's best seen in the last picture.
In the picture besides you can see the dragon hoard.
The mountain was made of Paperclay. To fill the gaps between the dragons and
the mountain I used air-dried clay,
so I didn't have to fit the whole thing into the oven.
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.
