1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / The last Unicorn on: August 09, 2010 07:23:21 PM
Hi everybody!  I've lurked on this site for a long time, and finally made something that made me want to post.
I made her for a The Last Unicorn art contest by Conlan Art, the publishers of the comic, which is totally gorgeous and you should get.
I used galvanized wire for a structure, and then shaped the unicorn around it, leaving holes for the legs. For the mane, I used a My Little Pony 'rehairing' technique and fake platinum blond hair I had to tone to silver/white. The hooves are grey yarn and the horn is an electronics white wire painted with glittery silver nail enamel.
The shape of the eyes is a tiny stripped wire inserted as if the sc were the holes from a breadboard, and the eyes themselves are plastic crystals embedded and glued.
I'm very proud of it, and will try to make a pattern once I finish a slightly more ambitious project: a dragon!
Hope you like it Cheesy
