    That sea dragon would look good with a koi pattern, or how about the colors you used on my little Bugger dragon?

    That was another pattern I was considering >.<

    what do the little dragons look like?

    That was my first sculpture atempt in about 15 years lol. Still it turned out kinda cute. One day I may redo it a bit, or make her a sibling 😉 I never thought I was going to figure out how to get enough bubbles out of the cast to make them work! Hopefully the casts I made (that finally look nice!) should be dry enough to paint soon.

    That are soooo cute!

    I am tickled pink you guys are liking these so far! HUGS

    I will have one unicorn and one small dragon painted and for sale sometime next week. The unicorn is a darkish dappled gray and the dragon is red fading into violet and blue along the spine. The dragon is around 3 inches long and tall. The unicorn is rougly twice the volume of plaster and 5 inches long by 4 tall. I will not be offering any of these unpainted (at least for now). When they are ready to go I will post pictures in the non windstones for sale bit and the first person who PM’s me will get it.

    The sea dragon is still getting his mold made, I ran out of the goop I use to make the hard casing part. And of course the art supply place took a week to get it shipped and it will take another week to get out here -_-

    For now they will be for sale just one at a time >.< I don't have a store or anything set up, since I just figured out how to make a usable cast. I have been teaching myself how to do this mold making and casting thing as I go, so be patient with me =)

    I will take requests on patterns or colors, but I can't give a concrete time frame for one being done. The casts take at least a week to be dry enough to paint. (I am using a gypsum based plaster for these btw.) I have one more unicorn and nestling dragon ready to be fancied up. If someone wants to see something specific by all means let me know! :bigsmile:

    Your sea dragon and dragon are amazing with those details! I would love a little unicorn if it was white with a colourful mane or maybe pink or light palomino coloured.

    Looking for rainbow or pink & teal grab bags!

    Maybe when I paint this second unicorn I will do so then 😉

    And thanks DT! I try to put as much character into the faces as I can.

    First casts of the sea dragon are out of the mold XD I don’t know that I am going to carve on them some more (for now). If I ever get some light out here I will take some pictures and get you guys’ opinion. I do have a unicorn and nestling dragon cured and ready to ship, but I haven’t had decent light since I took the pic of my GB uni. I will get those photoed as soon as I can too. Just thought I would give a brief update for those wondering how things were going :bigsmile: HUGS

    Thanks DF and Adaneth 😉 It’s still snowing where you are? bleh >.< I just have the seemingly never ending rain heh.

    No sun, but I snuck outside when the rain paused for a bit so I have a few pics of some stuff! These are very cloudy day type pictures, so the colors of the painted ones are a bit brighter in strong light.

    I need to finish cleaning this guy up yet, there are few spots along the seam that need sanding ect ect. So should I carve this some more now and have it be another month or so out before this is ready? Or think it looks pretty good as is?

    They all look fantastic but the sea dragon looks spectacular as is. What a beautiful job on each one. So much talent you have 🙂

    I LOVE the detail on the base of the unicorn! The mouse and mole are too cute!

    They all look wonderful! I love the sea dragon, and those dapples on the unicorn are great! 🙂 I’ve love to buy a sea dragon whenever they’re ready.

    (Yeah, spring refuses to come here. It’s crazy to have so much snow this late in April.)

    A painted seadragon! I think I will call this color “Kelpie” >.< This is under heavy cloudcover, so his colors are brighter than this. The rock is matte finished, and the dragon gloss. A peridot crystal and lime green eyes.

    The eyes/gem are just tacked on, if someone wants to buy him but doesn't like the color on those I can change them. I am really limited on eye/gem choices for right now however. I have 3 more waiting for paint, if there is a specific color someone wants just shoot me a PM. I don't bite, I promise!

    Oh My God Misty this is gorgeous. I love the coloring and the soft elegant detailing that it has. What an incredibly beautiful and delicate sculpture this is.

    Stunning! 🙂
