This tutorial assumes you have a basic knowledge of working with polymer clay.
This is an easy dragon to make and you can do it in a few hours. Many books and tutorials lead you through wire armatures, and pounding on aluminum foil, tedious painting.. I do none of that. I make these tutorials to show you an easier way to do everything. I do assume that you have experience with clay and know how to condition it and mix it. Using a pasta machine will make the job easy. I have a tips sheet of the process I like to use, and it is available with each tutorial.
This dragon is easy for a couple of reasons. 1- you do not need an armature 2 -you do not need to paint, you will use eye shadow and brushes from the Dollar store 3 -you will use soft super sculpey which is easy to condition and blend with colored clay 4 -I have patterns for you to have a guide, but do not require you to follow them exactly. The techniques shown are the ones I used to make the finished dragon you see here
I have described each step in 10 pages. I have pictures showing step by step how I model the head, body, and limbs, and put it all together.
I use very few tools and there is nothing expensive to buy.
This tutorial will help you if you are teaching a child, or want to learn simple methods for yourself. The supplies can be bought at a large Hobby Craft shop or online.
I also include another pdf file with tips for working with clay to help make your creating time all about having fun.
If you have questions I'm available and happy to answer them, just drop a line.
This is for the PDF FILE. After you go through checkout, Etsy should send the pdf file to you. Contact me if you have any problems with this feature
