To create your very own friendly dragon, you’ll choose between sculpting with speckled stoneware or porcelain clay. Two strong types of clay perfect for building a powerful dragon! Personalize it with wings, horns, bumps, and scales before it goes into the kiln to be fired. In a second session, come back to the studio to make it magical by adding colour with underglaze paints. One more time through the kiln and it’s yours to take home!
