Buttercup Flori by NorthStarCherry Buttercup Flori by NorthStarCherry
EDIT: I've tried out some new wings on this Flori and also my Daisy Flori
Please let me know what you think of them and whether you prefer the new ones or the old ones ect :)

I think I should make these wings more yellow but for a test piece these will do for now :)
-------

Buttercup Flori

Flori are miniature dragon type creatures that live among different flowers and plants.
This particular one lives among Buttercup flowers.

Flori live off small berries and other fruit they can find.
They also protect Bees from wasps

I don't why but I thought a buttercup would be more timid rather than playful so hence why I did this hiding type pose

Anyway her wings were an absolute pain in the ass! They would not stay up no matter how many times I tried :(
So I'm not too pleased with the final outcome

I know you can't see very well on this photo but I tried out some new crests/ears on the head and I quite like them :) They're more petal like and I think they're very cute

I will try and get a better photograph of this one tomorrow but right now I'm too stressed out from the wing problem

The wings are perfect! But in my opinion, dragon itself is little.. boring? You should have added some other colour to it, then it would be better.

Overall, I really love the wings and because of them, I still would buy her. :)

I coloured some fimo gel with oil paint and then spread it out into a thin layer on a ceramic tile :) (not too thin though) 
I then cut out some wire and embedded into the gel...if you try it I would make a loop with the wire (I didn't and it was a pain!)
Then after that I just popped it the oven and followed the gel instructions..once it was done I cut out the wing shapes :)

I like the wings like that. They make her look like she's resting or thinking. :) Also, the design is adorable for the crest. ^^

Everything is splendid and such great quality as usual.

And now I just read your comment, yes! The wings would look absolutely gorgeous if they were yellow, or if you brought in more colours. (i have no idea how that could work out, but it might).

I think the technique overall is wonderful, both on the dragon and the wings. Only thing you need to do is integrate both these components a bit more. But dang, this is wonderful.

oopsie! I lost this comment for ages! Ah well found it now :D

I originally said $20 but considering materials and fees ect it might be a tiny bit more :s

I'm improving these sculptures a lot in July! I've got some new wing styles I'm going to try which look a million times better than these ones :)

I can put you on the commission list if you would like? :) I have no idea when I will get round to them though (see my latest journal) I think I might just make a list of people who wanted one and work through it without setting specific dates :)

p.s Garrus ftw :D I'm also intending to make some mass effect Jewellery from July if you're interested :D
