dragon, we don't do that tongue thing by purplecatcreatives dragon, we don't do that tongue thing by purplecatcreatives
a dragon I have no name for yet.   :p

Edit:   So awesome to see this little fellow get a DD!    I wanted to update my description to say I did think of a name for this guy and have been calling him the Hanabi Dragon (hanabi is Japanese for fireworks).   Thanks so much for all the wonderful faves and comments!

I love the title, it's one of my favorite lines in Mulan. And like Mushu, your dragon is awesome. Is his eye a glass ball?

Thank you!   It's actually a flat backed glass cabochon....I went through a spell where I wanted to make earrings and bought a bunch of different types of cabs then it fizzled out and they became art supplies!   They work so well for that purpose I'll probably have to keep them on hand even after I run out of the ones I originally purchased!

Thanks!   He baked fine, with only one or two tiny cracks, which was a major worry of mine given his larger size.   I love his punky attitude and earring.    I wanted a japanese name for him and since he looks like a fire dragon to me I'm wavering between Hanabi Dragon or Kaji Dragon.     Hanabi is just a prettier word though.

How cute! I love how he looks kind of ferret-ish in the snout. Makes me think a little of Haku from Spirited Away :)

Wow, Purplecat. You've come such a long way since you first started sculpting. He's very elegant, and so detailed. And I love the fact that he's guarding a shell, instead of a jewel. A very down-to-earth little guy.
