    I just nearly finished my very first PYO – A wolf I named Haru, because it´s spring and I think he is a very cheerful being 🙂

    It was really adventurous and funny to get all the materials I wanted because it seems that nearly all of the acrylic paints you get here in Germany are too thick for the PYOs although the nice ladys in the artstores said I could use any of the paints… When I asked if there were any differences in the quality (beacuse I wanted to have good paints not some that will loose their color in sunlight or come off the figure like I read some of the cheap ones tend to do) they said there were no differences… Why I don´t just use Lacquers one of them wanted to know and looked at me like I was stupid when I said I would rather take the acrylic paint because I read that laquers are not recommended for these pieces. What a nice lady!
    It also seems there are no things like antiquing mediums here. So after getting nearly the same answers at different artstores I finally ordered everything online from a store in UK.

    And after anxiously awaiting all the materials, yesterday I finally had the time to paint him 🙂
    I was soooo nervous when I started but it was great fun and I think for my first piece he turned out really well, but I´m still unsure if I should antique him or not. I think I like him the way he is so I will just have to put a nice finish on him then he is ready for display.
    I hope you like him!

    He’s beautiful! Very warm colors.

    You can dilute acrylic paints, if that makes your life easier for next time.

    Thank you very much for all your nice comments! I´m glad you like him!

    Yes I know and I did with the paints I have now (liquitex soft body), but it was a bit of a battle in the beginning between too much and not enough thinner. Most of the time I used too much :p I don´t want to imagine how much I would have used with thicker paints…
    But I think now I know the basics and I won´t have so much problems next time.
    Can´t wait for my holidays, then I will have time to do the next piece!

    This really is addictive… 🙂

    I used my holidays well and here is my first dragon. He does not have a definite name yet.
    Originally he was inspired by the different colors of the leaves when the sun shines through them. But… Whenever I look at him he reminds me of the colors on the leaves of my Avocado-Plant :p
    But Avocado really is no name for a dragon, don´t you think?
    Anyway here he is 😀

    He’s beautiful! And I think the name Avocado is adorable. 😀

    Avocado is perfect! I just sold a small dragon that I had named Artichoke 😛

    He’s beautiful!
