Liam the Posable Dragon Doll - Sitting by omfgitsbutter Liam the Posable Dragon Doll - Sitting by omfgitsbutter
Holy smokes! We're a Daily Dev!

Mind = blown! I'm totally overwhelmed by all the fav's and comments! Thank you everyone, this has been an amazing experience. I usually trade a llama for a fav but I can't even keep up. :dummy:

-----------

So even though he didn't come out perfect, he did come out in one piece which is really all I could hope for with this experiment in posable doll making. If I could change anything I would use shorter faux fur, but thankfully winter is coming so he won't look so silly with his warm coat ;)

Clay parts are made of super sculpey polymer clay, fur is just a long bit sold at hobby lobby in the doll section that was dipped in a paint/water solution to dye. Feather boa was chopped up for some of the white parts, and the rest of the white bits were undyed fur. Paint is acrylic, and the eyes are just plastic 12mm doll eyes from hobby lobby, BUT! they are changing - just waiting for his glass eyes to come in the mail :)

I hope to make many more of these in the future! And of course perfect the process.

I can see why this got a DD, the face is adorable and the different layers and textures of the body make him seem like her could jump up and move around at any moment!

I love it! I tried making a doll once but the paint I used went sticky so the fur started sticking to it xc Did the foam "flesh" work? I'm curious, maybe I will try that next time. Congrats on the DD!
Reply
:iconomfgitsbutter:
omfgitsbutter Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012
The foam flesh worked perfect! Hes soft but not fingers can touch soft. What I did when I painted him was painted him before putting the fur on, used acrylic paint then did the glaze over :)

Thank you! I'm still stoked that I got one :)

That's what I did....I used acrylics but went the ghetto way and used clear coat nail polish for is glaze:noes:

Nope...Granbury, TX is good for Walmart, H.E.B, Kroger, Brookshires, countless gas stations, and many Mc.Donalds and Subways.
