Mels Dragon Curios is creating polymere clay creatures

I came to Patreon through a friend and fellow artist. She shared with me that this was a way to build my fan base and to reward loyal fans. I have been working with clay for many years, at first I made just for family and friends, but as I got better I had people asking for custom orders. I have been learning and changing my "signature" design as I go. I made real simple dragons with minimal features. I have changed my body style and added heads that are separate pieces that are shaped and less "blocky" and boring. I have learned how to make feathers as well as "fur" and "scale" looks. I have a more standard size set that makes pricing more consistent. I have also started to make Miniature foods and other creations for the local Miniature Club. They have taken a few of my items to Denver Colorado and Albuquerque New Mexico. I would like to build a fan base that makes it possible that I can go to these cities myself as a vendor. I also want a group of fans that are interested in giving me positive and creative input as well as new and fresh ideas. I value my fans' input and each and every one of you are vitally important to where I am and will be in the future. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am not comfortable enough to make a video at this time but maybe in the future I will make one.

With this goal met I will be able to purchase a better camera to improve the quality of my photos. The camera I use now is old and has a very small pixel count. I will use the new camera for the videos and tutorials that are rewards as well.
