Fierce Painted Green, Blue, and Gold Dragon Bust

600.00

This Bearded Dragon-inspired dragon bust is cast in translucent green-tinted polyurethane resin and brought to life with acrylic paint, metallic watercolors, and selective gloss varnish. I painted this bust by hand, and through glazing, dry brushing, and selective use of metallic watercolors, I brought out all the little details, including his pineal (3rd) eye! In keeping with dragons’ storied love of gold, I covered the base of this piece with 23kt gold leaf and then antiqued it to accentuate its hammered texture. The whole piece is protected by multiple layers of UV-resistant varnish for a lifetime of display and enjoyment.

I’ve spent a bit of time studying my bearded dragons Sheila (RIP) and Priscilla, and while sculpting this bust, I tried to stay true to the species’ look and character while adding a bit of bat and boar to create a new take on my favorite mythical creature.

This bust is 10” x 8” x 6” (roughly 25 x 20 x 15 cm) , cast in solid resin, and weighs close to 4 lbs (1.7kg).
