Oh, the dragons I’ve known!

Dragons and I have a long history.  I see them everywhere I go.  The first book I wrote was “Dragons” (and how to make one in polymer clay, of course).  Over the years, in my studio I’ve created dragons – dragons hatching, flying, swimming, covered in flowers, sparkling with crystals, holding emeralds, in full steampunk gear, and on and on. You’d think I’d get tired of them by now.  Nope.  Not sure why.  Well, that’s not really true.  Of course I know why – they’re fun to make with long tails and wings and faces that can be soooo many expressions.  And I like the idea of dragons – they don’t exist, but they DO (have you googled “dragons” lately? how can something that doesn’t exist be EVERYwhere?).  Dragons can be loyal guardians or patient protectors or fierce, hobbit-eating monsters.  Or they can just be little bits of polymer with garnet eyes and curly tails.  I’m fine with that.

    Your amazing Dragon book was the first one ever book about polymer clay that I bought! I believe that it was magic, because after a while dragons started to appear everywhere in my house! Have they been attracted to the book? I think yes! Thank you for writing this wonderful book that made me feel like a pro at polymer clay when I managed to create my first dragon 🙂
