Nougatgee asked to see the unicorn in my avatar, so here he is









He is sculpted from Super Sculpey, Super Sculpey Firm, and epoxy, over foil and wire. Painted with acrylic paint. His mane and beard are made from fox fur, and the hair on his hooves and tail, is Tibetan lamb wool. Hes about 8 in tall from hoof to the tip of  the horn. Modeled after an Arabian horse, his coat is fleabitten gray.

I dont keep track of how long it takes to finish a sculpture, but it takes weeks and many hours of work. Basically I just keep working on them, until I am somewhat satisfied with how they look.

When I saw the first photo, I thought it was a photo shopped horn on a real stallion.  Amazing work, and absolutely beautiful.

He is absolutely beautiful! Your work never ceases to amaze me with its detail and realism. I seriously expect your sculptures move when no one is looking.  Wink

 Shocked ...ummm....holy shit! (pardon my choice of words)
I would put a camara on him when you're not around to see if he actually moves  Grin I wouldn't be surbrised if he does.
