A quick pic of my good friend ~Emubomb
's commission Kiara. A beautiful silver dragon with white armour that has blue etchings.
As with all my dolls Kiara is fully posable. I start with a wire armature held together with epoxy. I sculpt the head and feet from fimo, a polymer clay you can bake in the oven. Once cooled I wrap quilt batting around the armature, then measure and cut a pattern, usually from fur but in this case it was silver spandex. Any extras are glued on, like fur or feathers, but Kiara is special and Emma asked if I could make her armour.
The armour was a trial in itself but eventually I came up with what you see. It's a standard drinks can that has been airbrushed, varnished several times, had ink painted onto it then varnished some more.
