The bronze was then patinated in blue and, when I brought it back, I re-fitted the glass to the bronze (there is some slight variation in size during the casting process). Then I fixed the glass to the bronze to finish my first Bronze and Glass Dragon. This one off piece I sold in November last year (2021).
Having been very pleased with the result of my original piece this winter I created a second dragon sculpture- this time from a clay like substance- and got a mould made from it.
I fitted the glass wings, spines, eyes and fins to this sculpture, this time in orange. When the patina is applied I have asked for a red orange finish to which I will fix the glass for #1 from this mould.
The next one can be another colour, either mine or the customers choice. I will make between 15 to 20 from this mould, each can be a different colour (or combination of colours), with the glass made to fit each time- again in any colour.
