Pocket Drakes Preview

Here is the sneak preview of the first run of castings of my New Pocket Drakes.  There is the Chinese Drake, Feathered Drake, Lazy Drake and the Serpent Drake.  They all range in size between 3-4 Inches in size. I will paint, and list on cast per each to begin with. Their pricing will most likely be around $23 or so.

This is the close up Of my Chinese Drake. 

This is the close up of my Feather Drake.

This one is the Serpent Drake.

And this one is the Lazy Drake.
They all need to be cleaned up, and patched before I begin to paint. Lastly, They will all be set with their eyes, and maybe some Swarovski Crystals...we'll see! 
Aren't they just adorable! I really have had some fun making these critters.  Once I can sell these four, I will be able to buy more material to cast up some more! They will be limited in quantity; I will sell only 10 per individual design. So reserve yours today!!! I will personally sign, date, and number each casting.

In Other News:
Remember me talking about my experimenting with casting larger dragon eyes?  Well...I have taken some snapshots of the three I have tried. They are nearly 3 inches in diameter!  I'm not sure exactly what I will do with them, but...I'm sure I will figure something out!

This is my new favorite color! It is the 'Magma Dragon' eye.
It reminds me of the burning eye in the 'Lord of the Rings' Movies.

This one I still love too...'Nova Dragon' Also nearly 3 inches in diameter. I think the mm sizing is around 75, or 76mms.

I was really Bummed out that this shot was so crappy!  It is the 'Black Dragon' color.  It got all blurred and smeary, but the fact of the matter with this one, id the casting was completely bubble - free, and perfect! *grumbles*  maybe I can scan it later or something.

Anyways, I was thinking of maybe taking these huge casts, and using them as a unique lid topper for some of my pyrographed boxes. I think they would be really neat  that way.  They are too large to be magnets, or keychains, but possibly a paperweight???  Who knows....

If anyone has any ideas to suggest, feel free to post!
