As soon as I saw this mask in Dragon Age: Inquisition, I knew I wanted to make it. As it happened, a friend of mine was planning to dress as Empress Celene for Phoenix Comicon 2015, so I crafted both the mask and also the lion crest that appears at the center of Celene’s marvelous back piece.
These are resin-cast, stylized owl masks done in a masquerade style, with detailed feathers and large open eye-holes. The design is my own, sculpted originally in oil-based clay and molded in silicone.
This sculpture depicts a traditional wreath of pine needles, with a stylized, serpentine dragon coiled around it. The dragon’s jaw is open and its tongue lolls out, and each scale all the way down its body is detailed in the sculpt.
A made a silicone mold of the original oil-based clay sculpt, and cast each piece in sturdy, solid urethane resin. Each one is then hand-painted and detailed, the wreath in shades of green, the dragon in a number of different colors.
Each ornament is 3 inches in diameter, and just under 3/4″ at its thickest point. While it is a solid-cast resin piece, it is also quite lightweight (less than 2oz). The hook attached to the top is 2.5″ long. The ornaments also come with a protective box to keep them looking pristine year after year. This is a fun and unique Christmas design for fans of fantasy creatures!
I only have these listed on Etsy when I’ve got painted ones available. If I have any of them available at the moment, they will be at this link: Special Holiday Items
This is a set of handcrafted mini dragon egg sculptures with their tiny hatchlings in various stages of peeking out.
When you get your casting resin in quantity, the containers start getting pretty big and unwieldy, like the metal jugs you see to the left. Here’s a trick I use to make storing resin and dispensing it a lot easier.
These are resin dragon skulls, sculpted somewhat flat to be used as wall hangings (that’s what the ones pictured here are), or as decorations for armor, props, or whatever else I feel inclined to use them for!
Meet specimen #1324-AT! This little fellow is a fossilized drakeling, or miniature dragon, captured in time and forever preserved in stone. To be more precise, he’s a cast resin replica of an original sculpture I did.
