 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

What an amazing project.  Like the others, I thought it was a photoshopped picture, and was delightfully surprised when I realized what it was.

How long did it take you to finish sculpting?

The recipient is very lucky! I'm sure she'll treasure it.

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.

There seems to be some magic at work, teehee!
