Pearl Cake Topper by DragonsAndBeasties Pearl Cake Topper by DragonsAndBeasties
Made on commission. NOT FOR SALE.

This was just a single dragon topper. She's reaaaally pearly. Usually my pearl dragons are made in white then dusted with pearl powder, but the bride requested I use the actual pearl colored clay as it comes out a bit more off white. It also leaves a slight marbling effect in some places. It's pretty rad :)

She's actually the biggest dragon I've made so far. She is 4 inches tall, and I've made toppers that tall before, but they are usually sitting up or standing. I sort of spaced the fact that she would be even bigger since she was laying down and had to reach 4 inches :XD: You can see just how much of a difference 2 inches makes in my dragons by comparing little Smaug (my normal size) to this giant here: [link] People don't seem to think a couple little inches should be that much of a difference, but when you work as small as I do, it really is. Bigger critters require some completely different techniques, greater reinforcement in the clay, and keeping so much surface area smooth can get a bit ridiculous... this is the last dragon of this size I will make for a while ^^;

Hand-sculpted from colored Premo Sculpey clay, 4 inches tall.
Commissions are CLOSED but you can find my commission info for when I reopen here: [link]

Please visit my FAQ page [link] before asking questions about techniques and materials. Just about every question I get is covered there. I’m not trying to be rude, I just get tired of answering the same questions over and over.
