The Zodiac Project

It’s not as sinister as it sounds, I promise. 🙂

I had an idea about making some dragons. So I’ve embarked on a journey to create all 12 zodiacs in dragon form. So far, I’ve got two done, Gemini and Scorpio.

Gemini was really interesting/difficult/irritating to make, actually. I had to make sure that every single piece was as identical as I could possible make it. Which is why they sat unfinished for three days.

Scorpio came out much smaller than I had indented, but I still think he is pretty cool. His tail is made of several balls of clay skewered onto a long, curved wire.

The pictures don’t show the true colors of these guys. The green is a very bright emerald, and the red has small sparkles in it.

I hope to finish the whole set of 12 at some point in the near future, but who knows. If I do end up finishing it, maybe I can do the Chinese zodiacs as well!
