Colby the Black Dragon Pup by Magweno Colby the Black Dragon Pup by Magweno
Now available on Etsy

Colby is a young dragon pup who loves digging holes. Like most dragons, he is a creature of earth and fire and always wants to be underground. Or maybe he’s hunting for buried treasure - as we all know, dragons have a natural lust for gold.

He is a mixed media art doll made to display proudly in your home.

Colby measures approximately 7.5” tall from heels to horn-tip.
He is weighted with steel-shot and stuffed with polyester
His body is machine sewn from cuddlesoft fur and his ruff and tail are 100% polyester fake fur.
His head is cast resin from an original sculpt, as are his horns, paws and feet.
He has latex wings and ear-fins that have wire running through them, so they can be gently repositioned.

More about Colby, shipping info and pricing on the Etsy listing.

all these are so adorable, I've been making plushies for some time now and want to get into making these (I don't know what this kind of sculp/plushes are called) 
I was hoping if you could tell me the following to help me out

- what are the main materials you use, and how are they to work with? 
- what are the costs of these materials (just roughly what it would be)
- any brands of materials you could recommend?
- what are some important do's and dont's for making these (for example did you make some mistakes when you started making these?)

thank you for reading, you don't have to anwser - just do it if you'd like

This one seems made in a different way than the gryffon you made for the tutorial. There is no wire in his body  i think you made his body by sewing it and after stuffing it. you glued head and paws? Did you make a "collar" with holes so you can sewed them on the soft body?

Almost, they aren't sewn, just glued. :)

I love the pink on his muzzle, and his cheeky little face in general. The clusters of gold scales are also a really nice touch!

Ah man it's a lot easier to paint them over the specific Dragon Fox scales, if I slip and paint the next one over it doesn't matter haha! I just paint that scale too! ^_^
