Very impressive. Are these patterns drawn on by hand after the molding, or do you somehow mold them into these colors? Because it doesn't look drawn on.

I gave the griffin a base coat of black then used those fine metallic gold paint pens to put on the find details, and the broader ones for the big spots.

Wow, gold pens! I never would have considered trying that XD Do you recall what brand at all? Ive messed with them in the past but always found them pretty unreliable!

There are a couple kinds: "Sharpie" makes a fine point gold pen,there is one called "liquid leaf" and the other brand is " Decocolor" . This griffin was done with Decocolor pens.
 Yes, they can be unreliable. I usually have to carefully coax them to work.

Then I shaded them with dark brown airbrushing to make them look less like they were drawn on with pens!

I just LOVE those details... My mom had guppies with almost exactly this pattern on their bodies and tails.
