I really enjoyed sculpting my turquoise dragon pendants. I have been trying for a while to sculpt dragons figurines in the round, but so far I haven't been pleased with the way they turned out, as my sculpting style uses more carving away clay than adding pieces such as legs and wings. With the dragon pendants, however, I think I've hit on something interesting.
These pendants are stylized rather than realistic. I wanted to try some more in a different color scheme, and immediately visualized the red color of carved cinnabar -- perfect for a dragon! Here is the first red dragon pendant I have finished. It resembles cinnabar, but has more of a golden sheen to it than the coral red of cinnabar. I plan to work some more with this technique as soon as I can. This dragon pendant is now in my https://www.etsy.com/shop/TouchstoneCreations" target="_blank">Etsy shop.
