rock dragon head in clay by Reptangle rock dragon head in clay by Reptangle
another pic of the "Rock Dragon " in clay. The rock is real. I borrowed it from a neighbor and promised to return it when I was done.
This original sculpture was made of "castaline" a really hard material that is sort-of a cross between Roma plastaline and wax. It is nice for detail work, but murder to form up.
First painted gypsum casting of this piece: reptangle.deviantart.com/art/R…

I have a lizard dragon too.  Your rock dragon is better though.  Love you works!

The sculpture was made on a real rock and then the whole thing was cast together as one piece in gypsum.

It is a new stuff I tried called "castaline". It is a cross between hard plastiline and hard wax. You sculpt it by melting it in a pot and then mush it into shape, or pour it into a mold to start with. It becomes very hard at room temp so it can be finely detailed. It is very difficult and awful to sculpt with by hand though, it's like sculpting with wet cat food.
It comes in different hardness and this was the hardest kind, so that may of been why it was so difficult.

That would make sense. I was thinking "Anyone can just pick up a rock..."

still one of my all time favorite pieces in my collection. He's just a wonderful blend of lizard and dragon, giving a dinosauric feel to him as well. One of these days I'm going to get around to nabbing the little rock dragon to go with him.

Have you ever contemplated sculpting more of your rock dragons? I know the concrete production isnt happening any more, but they'd still be lovely in gypsum.
