Robyn, the creator of Elisas Fairies has enjoyed "fantasy art" for many years. This past October she started making Dragons and is on a roll! Her very first dragon was Cassanova the Crystal Ball Dragon and he is adorable (pictured to the left).
Her inspiration for each dragon comes from her 11 year old daughter, Elisa. Each dragon truly comes from the heart as the mother and daughter team curl up on the sofa together to iron out all the details. Each one of her sculptures comes with their own little story...those all come from Elisa.
So how much time does it take to make these sculptures? Well it takes a minimum of 5 hours! That's right folks, this is no small task! Robyn carefully and meticulously blends the polymer clay (she has been known to blend up to 5 different colors for one dragon), then she individually makes each body part including the eyes, chest plate, nostrils, eyebrows, fingers, stomach/back plates and horns! She then bakes, glazes and adds wings. It's a lot of work to make these special dragons and her patients and attention to detail shines in each piece. The longest it has taken her to complete a sculpture was 7 hours.
Currently, she has 5 items for sale in her Etsy shop. Love what you see but want something custom? She would be more than happy to work with you to create something you'll love!
I have to tell you my favorite of her dragons is Hudson the Hug Dragon, he can be found on her blog! He is so cuddly and cute I just want to squeeze him! Robyn has her favorites too. When I asked her about a fav she responded..."There's a 3 way tie for the favorite dragon spot...lol. Hudson the Hug Dragon, Kelsy the Kiss Dragon and my newest Kahuna the Beach Bum Dragon are my favorites. There is just a quality about them...I'm especially proud of them." Who wouldn't be they are all fantastic!!
Kelsey the Kiss Dragon was recently awarded the Moderator's Choice spot on Elfwood.com (a fantasy are website).
WOO HOO! She's such a pretty dragon!
