The second project in Kater's Acres Project Friesen is to create a second, different dragon with arms and/or legs. Meet Torch!
Until now, I have never made an effective skinner blend...to non-clayers, briefly, it is a method to blend clay seamlessly from one color to the next. I did not do it in the traditional way--it just happened on its own, and so, I decided to keep it for the body even if most of it would be covered up with swirly goodness! Most of the swirls were made out of blended pieces.
The wings, ears, arms & legs were made with different combinations of the colors I was using. Torch is holding a beveled glass rectangle in her arms which I was so intent on anchoring that I didn't see the tiny cut in the arm until she was baked. I think I could have done more refining and smoothing of the digits, but overall I am pleased with my second effort.
