I finally finished this! I started it last year but hadn’t gotten around to the finishing touches until recently. This is a relief that I sculpted using a 6″ ceramic tile for a base. I took the clay off the tile after baking and I’ll probably glue a hanger on the back and make it a wall piece.
I sculpted this in all black clay – I was experimenting with Kato clay which seemed to work fine although I’m not a big fan of the vinyl smell. I used Pearlex mica powders to highlight the dragon. After it was baked I drybrushed the stone with light gray acrylic paint to bring out the detail.
