Nope! Tongue

I know that its hard to tell from the photos, but these two are actually very different. The one in my avatar, is one I finished last year.

Still needs more paint and hair. I could probably finish her today if I really wanted to  Undecided , it wouldn't take that long either, but I probably won't Roll Eyes.

Thanks everyone Smiley


The fins curling wouldn't be so bad if they didn't split so much when they did, it makes it look like the fish has been injured badly  Sad.

wow. i would have thought it was a real fish if it eyes were not yellow :-D

it is THAT realistic. and i agree with everyone, the curl adds something to it

Thanks
I didn't feel like painting them silver, and its actually not uncommon for goldfish to have pigmented eyes.

My 2nd one. Its 2 3/4 in long. The fins aren't quite as yellow in person. I had planned on making it solid orange, but it had a few small dark specks imbedded in the clay, so I covered them with black paint  Undecided.

I keep it next to the fish tank, my goldfish seems to like it. I left it on my dresser after taking pictures of it and when I brought it back to put next to the tank my goldfish was really excited. Tongue






This is my fist one. Its 2 in long.  It kind of just happened, I didn't really know what to do with a piece of scrap wire and epoxy, but I covered it with some pearl clay and started sculpting. I was happily surprised when it turned out to be a portrait of my goldfish  Cheesy, though I am still a bit disappointed that the fins curled Sad. Its still not finished, I havent sculpted the eyes or the mouth yet.

WOW. Those are so bright, I love the colours. Definitely the prettiest beads made this way that I've seen - I need to try this!

As for the beading elastic, it's tough stuff so pull the knot as tight as you can - literally until you think it's gonna break (it probably won't unless you are, like, the Incredible Hulk or something). Then stick a dot of Superglue or nail varnish on the knot to help hold it together. These will make some really pretty bracelets!

Thanks!  Cheesy

I really like this.  Any change you could use a toaster over to melt if you used a paper clip to hold together or something like that? Grin

 Undecided I don't know, not something I would try. I used needle nose pliers and a candle, I kept rotating the plastic and tried not to get it too close to the flame.

I love these!
i feel inspired to try it myself. i have an embossing gun that gets pretty hot.. do you think that would work the same?

i love the colors yours turned out. Looks great!

Thanks Smiley.  I imagine it would work, I have never used an embossing gun before tho.
58  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My 3rd unicorn is finally finished =D _LOTS OF PICS!_ on: April 22, 2009 04:00:13 AM
I started him last year, he has been sitting on a shelf mostly untouched since then. I am so glad that I finally got him finished, so that I can concentrate on getting my other sculptures done. Cheesy

He is made out of a mix of super sculpey and super sculpey firm, his horn, tail, and ears are made out of a flexible polymer clay to help resist breakage. He is painted in acrylic paint, colored chalks, and sealed with a satin finish. His mane and tail are made from mohair. He is about 4 1/2 in tall, and 7 in long from horn tip to hoof. He is modeled after an Iberian horse. His coat is dapple gray with fleabites.

anyway I hope you like him. He is my favorite so far  Grin






WIP pics





LOL looks like he is asking himself "what the heck did I just stept in"  Shocked

Shocked Wow amazing job!  no wonder the co-worker asked if it was real, because it does look real in the outdoor shots! Wow.  Amazing job.  What did you use for the horn?


Thanks

The horn is made out of a flexible polymer clay so that it won't break, and I used a 18kt gold leafing pen on it, since its easier than messing with sheets of gold leaf.

The flexible horns are great, it saved another of one my unicorns from getting squished when I dropped it.  Shocked It fell head first while the clay was still unbaked, but the horn took all the impact of the fall and bent in the complete opposite direction, and none of the detail on the face or body was squished or distorted.  Cry I was horrified when it fell, I thought for sure that it would be ruined after all those hours I spent on it, but I was so shocked when I picked it up and found that there was no damage at all except the horn, which I was able to bend back into shape. Cheesy
