I sculpted the original of this dragon out of air drying, water based clay called "critter clay". (It is  available from Aves studio) I did the detailing on a gypsum casting of the original, because air dry clay doesn't take fine detail well. The dragon shown here is a painted gypsum reproduction ( not resin)  made  from the final  finished sculpture.

What do you use to sculpt these? Your work is so detailed. I don't think I'd have the patience to do something like this.

I sculpted the original in a water based clay called WED. This one is a cast reproduction of the original

How do you paint it like this? Is it some special colour?

He is airbrushed with different colors of metallic acrylic paint,then hand painted in spots with a brush, and metallic marker pens.
I'm Sorry I didn't answer your question when you asked it! I somehow missed seeing it.

you know, I have the "Peacock" version of this guy. I named him Anku. Similar colors but more muted. I still love him, even though I've had him for over 10 years now!

It still is my favorite, although I was also rather fond of the pearly white color too. What I really miss is the brown Kirins. yep.
