Thank you Loco! You have opened new doors for me.

Hi!
Loco, I absolutely adore your dragons and I would love to buy your tut. I am on a HH though, and have no kiln at home. Is it possible to make your dragons under these poor conditions?

Thank you so much! I have never worked on a HH, but I have seen some amazing sculptural work done on them (think Nikki!). As for not having a kiln... I know that ever thing I tried to do before I had a kiln, other than small beads, cracked... So I really don't think so. I'm sorry.

Is there anyone here that has had any luck sculpting without a kiln?

Hey loco!

Kay did sculptural stuff that she "garaged" in a crock pot of vermiculite set on high to cool the beads. It was batch annealed at some point later. Her stuff was nowhere near as big as yours, but we rarely had any breakage. I think the key was flame annealing the pieces for some time, instead of pulling them out of the hottest part of the flame, looking for a couple of seconds, then sticking them in the crock pot. Also, our kiln ramp time was long and so was the soak time, so that may have had something to do with it. Your dragons are pretty huge, though, so I'm not sure how this would work here...maybe if someone made really small beads they could pull it off...

Great tut, by the way!! I haven't given it a shot yet, but hope to this weekend!

Thanks for the shout-out. I batch annealed (ok, the Booger Bead Boot Camp batch annealed) until about 3 years ago when I got a kiln. As long as I did a thorough (but not surface melting) heating when I was done with teh bead before I tucked it into the fiber blanket, they survived. (Whoa... Hot Head AND batch annealed? I am so going to lampworker's hell!)

I had fish, sheep, cows, etc, all survive as long as I kept insurance heat while melting and a good reheat after I finished applying any details. I think the largest surviving sculptural bead was about an inch and a half tall - a cow body.

Bruna, Your dragon is WONDERFUL! I am thrilled that it appears the instructions are getting such great results. I tried my best to show EVERY step and then some. I'm sure its just that you all are a bunch of amazing artists! Keep the pictures coming, I love seeing all these babies!

Finally clear pics.
This is Petit, the little blue dragon.

followed by the red christmas dragon... holding a green ornament

now this one is scary. Before going into the kiln, it was a pretty dragonette. But, uhm... it got changed into a transvestite dragon with a nostril reduction and lip enhancement my sister named him... Denis

And last, this is "what's his name" ... I got the idea from a cartoon, where the dragon likes to make poems about an upside down cake. This one broke a toe, so he's in an italian boot bath, getting his feet cemented in polyresin so he'll stand on a pedestal at my mom's and never break a toe again.

Loco this is a great tutorial, so much fun to do!
This is my first dragon, I donít have glass scissors so he needs a manicure and a pedicure, but all and all I think he is a gorgeous baby dragon.

Bruna, Diggin the dragons! Your transvestite dragon looks like it should be holding “something.” Bwhahahaha!!!!

Maggie, Great Job! I love the green you used, what color is it? Also PM me your addie and I’ll send you my small pair of scissors, I don’t use them often.

Jenny, Beautiful colors on beautiful dragons!

I am so thrilled that you all are doing a wonderful job with these dragons! Keep um coming, the world needs more dragons and gawd knows more smiles!

Thank you Loco!

The color I used is Moretti Mosaic Green.

Unfortunately my dragon decided that this world was to much for him....he leapt off the shelf he was sitting on and shattered on the granite counter top below; it was a gruesome sight indeed!

I'm sure there will be more dragons in my future they are soooo much fun to make, and with your generous offer of the scissors they will have proper toes and fingers!

I will PM you with my addy.

I think all the dragons are wonderful!
Thanks to loco for the wonderful tutorial, the humor and most of all for saying it's ok to play!
This is my first guy and he has loads of problems but he was fun to make. The next one will be better.. I hope. LOL!
I thought it was real funny that his tail looks like alien eyes peering over his shoulder!



My son wanted to know if he had two butts!
