Firey Mohawk Dragon by DragonsAndBeasties Firey Mohawk Dragon by DragonsAndBeasties
NOT FOR SALE. This guy was made as a birthday gift for my husband Matty. I've been selling my dragons for over 4 years now, but this is the first time I've made him a dragon. So it had to be awesome! This project kind of monopolized all my sculpting time the last couple of weeks ^^;

I wanted him to be a firey dragon but not too crazy firey. I tried putting a little yellow in there and hated it. Just didn't feel right for Matty. Instead I let the yellow be in the D20 he holds, and just put some really bright orange at the highest point of the mohawk and tip of the tail.There are about 7 colors in his mane. I made about three sets of wings before I was happy with the shape, size, and color gradient. Soooo much time went into this guy, it's ridiculous. :XD:

Made entirely from colored premo sculpey, no paint (except pupils of the eye)

Your sculptures are so beautifully made simply fabulous!
Would I however also like knowing how you downwind the spikes? Normal or with glue?

How do you get wings like that to stay up? Everytime I try something like that with big wings they always fall over or smear down and ruin the sculpture :(. I usually use wire but it doesn't work out well for bigger wings.

You can try to bake the wings separately first for less then 5 minutes then put them on the body.

The wire should hold (thats what I use) maybe you're not putting enough in? you might also want to give them some support when baking
