      Thank you very much!^^

      I’ve also completed another PYO! Since I had also started a new DIY room kit I had a somewhat decent backdrop for the PYO this time instead of my messy work area.

      This is Super Deluxe Mint Choco-Swirl! He’s a bit of a straggler but I think he makes up for it by being overloaded with sweet little details. This is the last of the Mint Chocolate Chip pieces I’m painting for my ice cream series. I’m not stopping the series, but I am going to move on to different flavors.

      This piece is being auctioned off here and on the Windstone Editions fan club over on Facebook. Here’s the classified ad for the auction, through you can also use facebook if you prefer

        A new WIP enters the fray! This will be another colorshift piece. The blue-purple paint comes out really well.

          I’m churning them out! This one’s called Star Shifter!💫

          Most of it is painted either with colorshift or color-changing paint. I couldn’t get a good example of the color-changing paint on the side scales as it’s kinda cold here.
          Originally I was going to paint small stars on the fur, but I thought it was too pretty so the stars are only on the scales.
          I was planning to sell this one but I’m going to wait a week or two and see how the color-changing paint reacts with the varnish. It doesn’t like getting varnished for some reason so I want to make sure everything’s ok before putting it up for sale (but I’m not against keeping it either because it’s still super pretty).

            I managed to get one last piece done before the end of 2022. This is Scales and Turquoise Sails.

            He was originally going to be a remake of a beach-themed dragon that got damaged, but I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted to do so he sat around for a few months. Ultimately, I opted to just paint the inner wings and some small accents. It’s a very basic look but I really like it.

              Had a bit of inspiration for a rock dragon piece so this one was finally able to leave WIP Purgatory.

              20230126_115207

              The rock has mica and gold interference paint on it to give it a nice shimmery effect like when sunlight hits snow at just the right angle.

                Ooh, I definitely see the inspo for the sparkling snow, I love that!

                  Thanks.:) Once it’s finished I think the dragon will look really nice against the rock.

                  This one will also be staying with me because the cabochons I was test-fitting got stuck in the sockets (they were 7mm but that doesn’t seem to mean anything to this derg). One cab is perma-stuck and the other I was able to remove but it took a bit of the eyebrow as revenge. Once the apoxie sculpt dries and I sand it down a bit I’ll get around to finishing the piece.

                    My first completed PYO of the year, Arctic Opal 1!

                    I think the colorshift on it is a bit too dark, so I plan to make a second version soon. But before that I plan to paint a different PYO that I got inspiration for while painting this one.

                      Very pretty! I know she isn’t one of your “Sweet Shop” PYOS but she still reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream. 🙂

                        Thank you!

                        Ice cream sounds really good right now (alas there is none in the house).

                          My current WIP. I’m varnishing as I go because I really don’t want to have to repaint any area with a color fade.

                            Finished one! This was in WIP Purgatory for a while and it’s nice to see it done.

                            Presenting Striped Seabeauty! The hipp’s body was “painted” with modified color pouring to get a unique one-of-a-kind marbling and coated with gloss varnish to really bring out the colors. Ultra matte varnish was used on the rocks and all the other decorations got a satin coating.

                            I plan to list it for sale a little later.

                                Thanks! The dark stripes against the extremely bright yellow is one of my favorite things about this piece.

                                  Really nice job with the zebra striping!
