  • 1
    Knead clay and divide into 1 large and 2 smaller-sized balls.
  • 2
    Mix in acrylic paint to tint the clay. Add more or less paint to each ball to create a gradient of colors.
  • 3
    Apply the large ball of modeling clay to the wooden goose egg and work from top to bottom. Pat down and roll until the clay is smooth and fully covering the egg. If desired, add a thin coat of metallic paint for a vibrant finish.
  • 4
    Press in gems & findings while the clay is still soft. Leave a section of the egg uncovered; this is where the eye will be placed.
  • 5
    Create a dragon eye by painting enamel onto the back of a glass filler. Paint the pupil first, building up color in layers. Scrape paint with an awl to create texture and allow colors to show through from the front. Seal the paint with a heat gun for 5-10 minutes and let fully cool before handling. Press eye into clay. Hot glue to secure.
  • 6
    Create scales from smaller balls of clay. Press down, layering colors around the eye.
  • 7
    Place a thin chain around the eye to create a border. Glue in place if necessary.
  • 8
    Roll two small logs of clay to create eyelids. Use an awl to add small details. Allow clay to dry overnight.
