My Composi-Mold Mold
My Finished Dragon
My Finished ATC
Following the simple directions on my container of Composi-Mold, I first made my mold. Then using air dry clay I made my dragons. Then using acrylic paint I painted them black. After they were dry I dry brushed them with gold acrylic paint. While they were drying I made the card that they would be mounted on. I found a picture of a map of Game Of Thrones and resized it and printed it. I tore the outside edges and then I inked the edge to make it look aged. I mounted it on brown card stock. I attached the dragon with double sided tape so that if the person that received my ATC wanted to they could easily remove it, and glue the pin back that I enclosed in each ATC sleeve to it.
I just couldn't help myself. Once upon a time I would get so excited waiting for those lumpy, bumpy envelopes with my swap returns to come in the mail. Then everyone got so uptight over postage going up that gone was the lace, the ribbons and bows, gone were the rhinestones and pearls, gone were the charms, the paper flowers, and the handmade embellishments. Gone were all the sparkly little treasures that brought me so much joy both to give and receive. Gone are the days that these little artist trading cards were truly little gifts from the heart, I really hope that these little dragons stir a memory of bygone days when dragons ruled and ATC's were tiny treasures.
