Slate Grey Teal and White Polymer Clay Dice Dragon by MiniMythicalMonsters Slate Grey Teal and White Polymer Clay Dice Dragon by MiniMythicalMonsters
This little dragon is a dark sparkly grey slate color with white and teal horns and accents.

His tail curls up just right to hold a standard sized D20.

After baking the clay I coated the dragon with a matte gloss glaze.

The dragon was created completely by hand out of premium polymer clay.

Dimensions of the dragon are 2.5" x 2.75" x 2".

This little dragon is listed for sale in my Etsy shop!

Those are my favorite colors right there in clay dragon form! Amazing work on this, I love the pose, and how you did all of the little details, especially the cute tail. :love: Also like the slight shine to it. 
All of the really amazing dragons I see are already sold D:

Very cute! Love the colors, and love how his tail curls like that. :heart:

What brand of matte gloss glaze do you use? I've been looking for a matte glaze for a freakin' long time and can't for the life of me find one. I'm using a satin varnish right now, and while it doesn't make my stuff too incredibly shiny, it's still not what I'm looking for... :dummy:

Ty! I'm using 'Americana DuraClear Matte' I found at Michaels, I'm not entirely happy with it though, it still shows a bit of shine...I'm also looking for something better >.<

Huh. Well that's just wrong. If it's matte, it shouldn't shine at all. :shakefist:
Thanks for telling me, though. I guess I'll steer clear of the stuff if I come across it during my search. :XD: Although it might be better than the kind I'm currently using. :dummy:

That's what I thought! I would still suggest giving it a try! It's the best I've found so far, its a bit shiny, but not so bad (it's definitely not melt-your-eyes glossy). If you do find a better one please let me know! One of the things I love so much about using polymer clay to make these little dragons is how the clay looks after it bakes, I wish there was something I could coat them with that wouldn't subtract from that soft texture. Then again, that extra skin protection is invaluable!

how did you get it so smooth looking? mine dont do that lol

The clay tends to hold onto fingerprints if its too soft, I place a too soft flattened out wad of clay in between two pieces of white paper for a little while (15-20 minutes) to leech out some of that plasticizer. I also smooth it out a lot as I work with it. Finally after its all put together you can use a bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swap to smooth the fingerprints off, but be careful this makes the clay a bit unworkable, so do this to the surface after your done with your creation.

It took a bit of practice and handy tips from others here on DeviantArt to learn these nifty techniques!
