The Copper Dragon's Paint-Your-Own Collectibles

Inspired by the beautiful, detailed Paint Your Own sculptures and collectibles offered by companies such as Windstone Editions, Harmony Kingdom, Painted Ponies, the Disney Store and many others*, Andrea has decided to start her own line of collectibles! Each design is painstakingly hand-sculpted by Andrea then hand cast in durable, natural Gypsum stone material, and is ready to be painted. Let your imagination go crazy!

The first sculpt, now available, is a Coiled Baby Ball Python, curled up in a circle. Each statue measures approximately 6" x 6" x 1.5" high. Thirteen different eye variations are available (shown below), including a blank eye you can customize! Each PYO Python is $25 plus shipping costs, and includes the cast python, a protective felt pad, pair of eyes (your choice color), a product tag, painting tips, and box.





*CDs with full color example pictures, descriptions of python colorations,
and "painting recipes" will also be offered for $3.
This nominal charge covers the cost of
making the cd, and cd shipping is free with purchase of a PYO Python.


 

Currently For Sale:
(Please note: if numbered #X of 10, there will only ever be ten snakes painted for that design)

 
  
"Angelique" #2 of 10 (#1 already sold)
Limited Edition, Artist Signed & Numbered.
Comes with Signed Certificate of Authenticity.
$75.
Inspired by the tulip flowers of the same name, Angelique was hand painted in the traditional ball python patterning
in lovely shades of metallic peach, bubblegum pink, and pale yellow. She features gorgeous ruby red eyes.




 
 
"Emerald" #2 of 10
Limited Edition, Artist Signed & Numbered.
Comes with Signed Certificate of Authenticity.
$75.
Emerald was a ball python who so badly wanted to be an Emerald Tree Boa that she had a makeover!
Her beautiful green color was given a blue wash to subdue her overall tone, then a yellow blush was applied
along her belly, and individual yellow scales blend this up into her sides. White scaled stripes run down from
her spine. Her custom gold and black speckled eyes were carefully designed to mimic real Emerald Tree Boa's eyes.





 
   
"Copper Rose" #1 of 10
Limited Edition, Artist Signed & Numbered.
Comes with Signed Certificate of Authenticity.
$75.
Copper Rose was hand painted in an original pattern in lovely shades of red, coppery orange, and amethyst.
Her belly is drybrushed with a metallic gold blush and an all-over metallic gold tint makes her glamorous!

Each is signed & dated on the felt pad and hangtag by Andrea. No two will be alike.

Available Eye Colors
for the Paint Your Own Pythons

(Please Note: These are photoshopped pictures because I cannot photograph the tiny eyes
well enough to show detail- they will be as close to these photos as I can manage,
but keep in mind they are all hand painted!)

If you do not know what color of eye you need for the snake coloration you want to paint,
let me know and I can make sure you get the right pair.


Normal Eye




Lighter Eye




Silver Eye




Albino Red




Brilliant Red





Blue with Black Pupil

 


Blue with Red Pupil




Black with Red Pupil

 


Dark Green

 


Lighter Green



Clear with Black Pupil
(Allows you to paint any background color iris)




Clear with Red Pupil
(Allows you to paint any background color iris)




Clear with No Pupil
(This pair allows you to paint your own color and shape pupil and iris.
Be warned- these eyes are very tiny and I don't recommend this Clear pair for inexperienced
painters. But the results can be rewarding for those with the patience and talent.)
