Shaded Crystal Dragon

Designer: Bailie Benson



  1. Begin by wiping down the MB1359 Asian Dragon Bisque with a damp sponge to remove any dust.
  2. Using the soft fan brush, apply two coats of FN009 Black allowing the glaze to dry between coats.
  3. With a damp sponge, softly wipe back the black glaze from the raised textures on the dragon.
  4. Lightly hit the wiped back sections of the bique with the sanding pad to bring out the white of the bisque.
  5. Using the fan, script liner, and detail liner brushes, apply the Jungle Gems to the following areas with two coats of glaze:
    1. S2723 Grape Devine to the underbelly.
    2. CG756 Firecracker to the inside of the mouth.
    3. CG983 Koi Pond to the main scaled parts of the body.
    4. CG987 Tree Frog where the lower part of the fur connects to the body, going about halfway up the fur.
    5. S2729 Citrus Splash to the top section of the fur, dragging down into the Tree Frog color to create a gradient.
  6. Using the Detail Liner brush, apply three coats of Grape Devine to the eyes, removing any crystals.
  7. Using the Detail Liner brush, apply two coats of s2101 Crystal Clear brushing to the eyes, teeth, and any other places that may not have been covered with the Jungle Gems or Foundations glazes.
  8.  Allow to fully dry.
  9. Stilt and fire to cone 06.
