Swamp dragon by thai-binturong Swamp dragon by thai-binturong
A swamp dragon, a kind of fanart based on Terry Pratchett's books and Paul Kidby's illustrations. Oh my, love them both =)
It was supposed to be kinda modelling doodle, was done rather quickly.

Paperclay over wire armature.

Some more of him here:



If you like air-drying clay creatures, you may also like Jakaro :)
See him here

Another Terry Pratchett fan!!! You just made my day. Marvelous dragon, by the way. Lady Sybil would be proud.

wich type of papperclay did you use im trying to get into sculpture and testing out the Delight variation

also any pointers for sculpting with it?
Reply
:iconthai-binturong:
thai-binturong Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
That was the usual one, the one in black wrapping. Do you like Delight variation? does it really differ?)
I actually like La Doll more, it seems more smooth and elastic for me)

And pointers... do you mean tools? i usually use some, mostly homemade))

i didnt find out there was more kinds till i looked at the site(my store only had delight) so i have nothing to compare to

and as to pionter i ment what would you recomend say for attaching fresh clay to already hardened clay for features and such

thai-binturong Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Uh i see!))
Actually it attaches rather nicely. You just damp the hardened spot and then attach some fresh clay, thoroughly. I sometimes use white PVA glue for better cohesion (i even rub it into pieces of fresh clay). It is especially good when you need to fix a crack or something)

Oh, and I often watch "Going postal" =)
It's made of paperclay on wire framework, with glass eyes. Actually paperclay and ladoll are my favorites.)
