One of the things I love most about polymer clay is the way it feels in my hands. As a sculptor I feel something in clay that many others do not get to feel with polymer. I get to literally push, pull, and manipulate clay in a way that many only dream of doing. If you’ve followed this site for any length of time now, you know that I love making fantasy characters and imagining things in a new way (but most especially in my own way).
This polymer clay dragon tutorial that follows is to help you make a similar dragon with little heart themed accessories. Please know that the polymer clay dragon frame Christi makes in her book is much more realistic, scary, and serpentine-like. You are free to choose to make either project … or make them BOTH!

Because when you read through Christi’s books and learn her style, her humor and love for the inconsistencies in claying inspire you to be more creative than you thought you could be!
Last week you were challenged to create a dragon with arms and legs.
Well, it’s finally here … the second week of Tutorials for the 2013 Friesen Project. I have loved seeing all of your work and dragons that you have made over the past week since we began this project. Here are two of my personal favorites…both done as an offspring of the Wendyll dragon from the first tutorial.
Well, it’s finally here … the first week of Tutorials for the 2013 Friesen Project. Are you excited? I know that I am! After last week’s Friesen Friday and reading your book, some of you just couldn’t wait to dive right in and have already created your dragon. That’s fine, no big deal! But throughout this month there will be several different “specific components” you are going to need to work on for each project. Without any further ado however, let’s get started!
