Time To Be A Dragon

No comments

I won't lie... I printed this image a while ago, but it got put aside for other more urgent projects.  I guess she was waiting to become an Inspiration Post!
I honestly don't know when I developed a love for dragons; it seems like forever ago, but the magic and majesty of them really appeals to me.  I knew I wanted to make myself a dragon-related canvas and it wasn't too hard finding the perfect sentiment.

I used this stencil as I think it looks somewhat like scales.  I used one layer of clear gloss texture paste, then coloured with Distress Ink/Oxide. Once that was dry I sprinkled with some Fran~tage.  Usually with this medium I would heat from underneath so it doesn't blow away, but that doesn't work so well with these hard-backed canvases.  Instead I spritzed some water and sprinkled the powder onto that so it would stay put. 

I printed 'Demera Mother of Dragons' with light lines and coloured her with ProMarkers.  I've also recently started using Prismacolor pencils for the finishing touches.  Here I have used them for the makeup and to draw in the eyelashes.  I think it gives a more natural, subtle look than using the markers in these areas. 

You can find this image in the Faery Ink Etsy shop as part of a bundle - 'Darlings & Dragons' includes three other images which you will definitely adore if you are a dragon fan like me!
