Starry Night Dragon, Handmade Polymer Clay Dragon by MiniMythicalMonsters Starry Night Dragon, Handmade Polymer Clay Dragon by MiniMythicalMonsters
I based this dragon off one of my favorite paintings, 'The Starry Night' by Van Gogh. There are various splashes of blues in oodles of tones travelling the body of the dragon with almost floral looking yellow stars in various places.

I thought it would be great to add this sort of color and motion to the body of one of my little clay dragons! It's fun the way the body of the dragon becomes a 3D canvas, the forms of the clay body completely influence the flow of the artwork on it.

This dragon took quite a bit of work to do! Each individual color you see was hand shaped and placed individually on the dragon's body.

Dimensions of the dragon are approximately 3.5" x 3" x 3.5"

If you love this dragon I have him available for sale on my Etsy page!

XD since you've done Starry Night, you should do the TARDIS Exploding :3

At least, if you're a whoovian, like me. That would be awesome.

I don't have the patience or skill to use clay like that. -_-||| Very well done! the blue and yellow contrasts very well with the main black part of the dragon!
