This weeks dragon was started when I watched Sandrartes’ wonderful polymer clay video on making a cat that is a cell phone holder. I thought it was utterly adorable and amazingly clever and immediately decided to make my own version: a dragon, of course. 🙂

The trick in this design is getting the form to follow the function. The tail actually plays a big part in keeping everything balanced.

While putting away my groceries this week I discovered my newest favorite texturing tools: the mesh bags used for produce. The fine mesh used on the spines was a sleeve holding my heads of garlic. The medium mesh held onions and the largest mesh held avocados.

I just loved being able to wrap this texture around the clay and hold onto it while adding details but not smearing my pattern.

If you’d like to see my other dragon creations so far, I’ve made a Thursday’s Dragon Pinterest board just for them.

Be sure to visit Sandrartes’ YouTube channel, she has lots of wonderful, creative designs.

Check out this post on Errol, dragon #1, for the details on why I am making a dragon every week in 2015.
