dragon #50 Brandt (1)

Meet Brandt, dragon #50 in my year-long series of polymer clay dragons. I can hardly believe there are only two left to complete this challenge!

Brandt’s name means “proud,” which seems appropriate as he is inspired by the beauty of peacocks.

Earlier this week I shared this in progress photo. You can see that I made a clay cane based on the designs and colors in a real peacock feather.

The original plan was to cover his body with the cane, but that seemed too busy. I much prefer the blue to green gradient with just touches of the peacock eye shapes.

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

His tail really gives the impression of a peacock’s tail, without making him look like a peacock.

I love the little smirk on his face, a proud fellow indeed!

  1. Wow, is he beautiful! What a great concept. Yes, that glittery blue is gorgeous with the peacock colors. Nicely done!

  2. I love this dragon, Sandy! Love the colors, love peacocks, well, everything about him. You are quite talented. Only wish I could even know where to begin with such a project, but I’ve never worked with clay before.

    • Hi Deb! Thank you for the nice comments.

      Yes, I do love the richness and colors of peacocks. This fellow has been on my to do list for quite some time. 🙂
