1  Sitting Horse in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Yaqulek on: April 06, 2015 09:42:41 PM
This year I have been working on finishing old projects. I think that may have started sculpting her around 2008 or 2009, and I finished painting her around 2012, so she has been waiting for hair for the last 3 years  Shocked.










Sculpted from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, no molds were used in the making of this sculpture. Painted with acrylic paint. The mane and tail are made from dyed mohair. She is 4 1/2 in tall and 5 1/2 in long.

2  Beaded Wooden Eggs in Easter by Yaqulek on: April 05, 2015 01:44:02 PM
I used a peyote stitch to cover turned wooden eggs with seed beads.  The pink egg isn't quite finished.



I thought that I might have posted these on Craftster before, but I couldn't find them,  Tongue so here are some of the other eggs I have beaded in the past.



The blue and yellow "egg" on the right, is actually a oval shaped rock.

4  Bowing Unicorn in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Yaqulek on: January 20, 2015 03:34:58 AM
I finally sculpted a bowing unicorn! Cheesy I had tried so many times to sculpt a unicorn in this pose, but I could never quite get them to look right.

Hand sculpted from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, no molds were used in the making of this sculpture nor were any made. Hand painted with acrylic paint. The mane is made from Tibetan lambs wool and the tail and feathers (hair near the hooves) are mohair.

He is 4 1/2 in tall at the highest point and about 9 in long.

and thank you for the feature  Smiley


It was pretty cold, so I didn't get many photos with the frosty trees.



her mane looks a bit messy from this angle, but here is what the other side looks like.

6  Appaloosa Unicorn in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Yaqulek on: January 04, 2015 03:22:34 AM



Hand sculpted from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paint. The hairs on the coat were meticulously painted one by one, they even follow natural hair growth patterns and swirls. No molds were used in the making of this sculpture nor were any made. The mane and tail are made from mohair.
 
She is 7 1/2 in tall at the highest point and about 6 1/2 in long.
 
I don't remember when I started painting her, but I have been working on painting her since before I finished the black unicorn foal I made in 2012, not to mention the time it took to sculpt her. To have worked on her for so long she was a real labor of love to create. I think that she is my favorite unicorn that I have sculpted so far. Cheesy




Lol she looks like a hair model in this photo  Grin



Her foal and another unicorn I sculpted




I am hoping that the frost sticks around until tomorrow, so that I can get some glittery, wintery pics of her outside.

I am a slow knitter, so I love how quick and easy this pattern was. Cheesy



The hat I made is a child sized. I plan on making more of these in various sizes for donation.

Here is the pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/snappy-hat

10  Appaloosa Wall Hanging in Completed Projects by Yaqulek on: October 08, 2014 11:20:59 PM

I had a little 3" X 3 5/8" block of plywood leftover after I built a couple of freestanding shelves, I felt that I had to do something with it, so here is what I came up with.



I stained the wood with watered down acrylic paint to make it look a little more weathered. I painted little black and white confetti horses to look like appaloosas then glued them on to the block. I coated it with clear resin so that the little confetti horses would not come off and to attach the horse head.



Before I coated the block in resin wood burned "appaloosa" on both sides.



I nailed rusty horseshoe nails to the the top of the block to attach twine. I dyed the twine with Rit dye to match the wood. The beads strung on the twine, I made from recycled plastic bottles (more on how they were made http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285491.0;all , I was so happy to finally have a use for these, for years I didn't quite know what to do with them  Grin ). Then I drilled holes in the bottom, so that I could glue in glass bead strands.



These are unpainted casts I made from horse heads I sculpted from polymer clay, molded with silicone and cast in white resin.
