Each Dragon is hand- sculpted from air- dry clay and hand- painted. No molds are used. Small hand tools detail and refine the shape and accents. Colored acrylics are then applied before sealing with a clear, low- sheen, water- based finish. The sealant preserves the luster of the colors and prevents running or any deformation if the clay were to get wet. Baby Dragons are covered in an 'infant membrane' that makes them shine like glitter and sheds as they mature. Adult Dragons have well- developed scales, more visible to the naked eye.
Since each clay figurine is handmade, there may be slight variations in appearance, size or color. Although every effort is made to recreate each figure to mirror the image on line, small differences are to be expected.
