Polymer Clay Dragon: Gemmie
Posted on September 8, 2014 in Polymer Clay Dragons by Katie Oskin
NEW Polymer Clay Dragon
Gemmie is a special dragon. She is filled with joy & sparkles from the inside out. One day Parker found her hiding in a cave. When Parker asked what she was doing, she told him she was looking for ‘sparkle dust’ to make her sparkle more. Parker decided that he would help Gemmie. So the two of them set off on a grand adventure in the cave looking for ‘sparkle dust.’ As dusk approached, they hadn’t found any ‘sparkle dust’ for Gemmie. She was so sad. Parker told her not to worry, he’d come back tomorrow. But then, just as they turned to leave, a bright purple sparkle caught Parker’s eye. There it was, a giant jewel! Maybe not what Gemmie had been looking for, but Parker knew that it would make her happy. “Gemmie look!” Parker exclaimed. Gemmie looked and her eyes were filled with wonder. Together, Parker & Gemmie worked to get the giant jewel out of the rock. When they had freed the jewel, Parker took it and placed it on Gemmie’s head like a crown. “This way, you’ll always be sparkly” Parker said.
How Gemmie Was Made
Gemmie is handmade in my polymer clay studio in NW Pennsylvania, USA. Gemmie is sculpted by hand with polymer clay in custom color blends of a bright yellow with turquoise & royal purple accents. A large Swarovski crystal as well as white & teal acrylic paint have been used at add accent details. These dragons are a limited edition, one of a kind (OOAK) dragon & will not be remade.
Where the Dragons Came From
One day while Parker was exploring Kater’s Acres, he found a wall of brick overgrown with moss deep within the Magical Forest. There was a bright yellow plaque behind the moss, but he couldn’t read what it said. As curious as ever, Parker took his hand and pushed back the moss to reveal a sign that read “Magical Creature Containment Zone.” Parker just knew he had to find out what laid behind that wall, waiting for him to find. As he searched and found each dragon, he gave them a quick kiss on their head, where a now permanent “Parker shaped spot” appears.
