I made this dragon using polymer clay, sculpey being the main product bran. Sculpey Original is $5 a pound, Super Sculpey is $10 a pound, I buy service wire at Lowe's by the foot. Aluminum foil is used as a bulking agent, and I used masking tape to cover the foil.
I then cover the armature in clay as evenly as possible [this is easily done with a pasta machine] once the armature is completely covered and detailed how I want, I then put it in our household oven to bake. Baking: for every 1/4 inch thickness, you bake @275 degrees for 15 minutes. SO something a half inch thick would go for 30 minutes...
However.. I found you can lower the temp a bit.. like 250, and bake for a bit longer. lower is better = less burning.. read all the instructions and cautions before baking.
This clay will never dry out, so take your time making what you want.. once it cooked it can't be reversed (can't get you clay back) but you CAN sand it, drill it, carve it..
