Thats really good, what media did you use? Doesnt look like any clay Ive ever worked with. Samantha Rose Carroll
replies: "I used a red clay for this sculpture. The clay turns pink after it has been fired but the reason the piece is the color of wood is because of how i painted it. for the purple and green sections i watered down tempra paint and painted those sections then polished the piece with brown shoe polish. this makes it shiney but leathery looking instead of looking like glaze. its a great technique my teacher taught me and i use it on most of my work. it creates great shadows when you are working with details like scales"

What a good technique! my wife Lynn(purple dragoness) likes to do ceramics too, and did some ginger jars using a stone smoothing method used by Indian potters here in Arizona.but what did made this fellow look very leatheryindeed. Nice job.
