Purple Dragon Toasting Glasses by DragonsAndBeasties Purple Dragon Toasting Glasses by DragonsAndBeasties
FOR SALE here: [link]

These are the test flutes (glasses) I made before the blue and white ones. I cleaned them up, added some sparkle, and am now selling them. Here is a close up of the dragons:


Please note, they are more for decoration than for use. While you can drink from them, cleaning can be tricky and they shouldn't be man-handled more than necessary.

When I made these, they actually gave me less trouble than the others, because the stem was thinner and straighter. I thought I got a pretty close shape to practice on, but apparently not. They were deceptively easier to work with than the real ones :XD:

Dragons hand-sculpted onto glasses with Premo Sculpey clay

Sorry, but I WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY MORE FLUTES.

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

Do you have any advice about making these champagne flute dragons? I'm about to attempt them myself, and I'm not really sure where to start...

They're really hard to stick to the glass. So just be sure they're really stuck on there. When you bake them put them on polyfil and don't bake them upright lay them sideways :)

She probably did. It's easy to bake Sculpey clay directly onto something and glass will easily withstand the temperatures it takes to harden the clay.

I'm sorry you had such trouble making the others, they were amazing. I guess if you can't find a systematic way of doing it that has a high success rate, it probably isn't worth the time.

For a test, these are beautiful.
