Thanks for the comments everyone  Grin


Beautiful!  Have you posted your process before?  I would love to see a beginning to end series!  Smiley

No, I haven't really posted the whole process before. I don't really like to take many progress photos anymore, because when sculpture doesn't work out they can become depressing reminders of failed pieces. Sometimes I get near finishing a sculpture, then I decide I don't like it, and end up tearing it apart or starting over completely. Sad

This post has photos of one my old unfinished unicorns tho http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302071.msg3450734#msg3450734
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bowing Unicorn 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.

I love them all.  The one with Santa is my favorite, and the one with the reindeer holding up the clothesline is so cute!  Grin

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.

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Appaloosa Unicorn 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.

Maybe it's a product called "friendly plastic". You when you warm it you can stamp or bend it, fuse it to other pieces of itself like glass, melt it down and mold it.

I have never looked for it in stores, but I have seen it for sale in many online stores.
10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: hat a-long 14 in 2014 on: December 06, 2014 08:45:15 PM
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
