Dragon Claw by mysticalis Dragon Claw by mysticalis
This started out as a backscratcher and turned out to be a weapon of mass destruction. The finers were a bit out of alignment, so I added more apoxie tomake it look more anatomically correct. It ended up weighing about 4 pounds by the time I was finished. The whole thing is sculpted out of apoxie sculpt with the exception of the piece of crystal quartz at the end. It grew to be so large, I ended up sculpting a stand to go with it out of apoxie sculpt as well. All in all I think it turned out pretty cool looking. It is also at Dragon Con this weekend.

This is amazing! I've never heard of apoxie sculpt before, but if you can make something this amazing with it, the stuff must be brilliant!

It's a bit difficult to work with, but highly worth the price. It's nearly indestructible. Unlike polymer clays it is very strong, but takes a lot of getting used to.

I did a search for it on the net, it's the two-part stuff you mix together?
Anywho, I love the claw, did you end up selling it?

Now THAT'S a Backscratcher! It looks increadable!
I am really wishing I could go to this Dragon Con you speak of... it'd be worth it just to see this on the flesh!

How long is it?

Oh it's about 20-24 inches or so. Not quite positive since I didn't measure it before it went out of here, but it's pretty long overall.

Well it probably won't, because I have a pretty high price on it, but it took me too long to give it away for next to nothing. ;)

You shouldn't have to lower your price just to get it to sell - if people are too blind to see how much work was put into it they don't deserve to buy it!

Why thanks! At this point I don't think I sold anything, but word has it, it was a slow year there for a lot of people. Maybe the cost of living has just gotten to a point where "art" as a luxury has been put on the back burner.

Yes the cost of living has seemed to raise - especially with all these soaring gas prices!! I'm sorry you didn't sell anything... better luck in the future!

Eh, selling isn't the main thing, I did have a lot of people take business cards, so I will probably get some commission work out of the deal. I got a lot of exposure, and that's what's really important.
