This was supposed to be a "quick", "fun" Roll Eyes project I had so many problems with it, that it has taken me years to finish.

 




It is sculpted out of Super Sculpey, Kato, and epoxy. It is painted with acrylic paint, colored chalk, mica powder, and glitter. The eyes are Austrian crystal, the mane is dyed Tibetan lamb's wool, the fins are made of cellophane and wire. It has been coated in clear resin for a durable glossy finish. It is 6 in long and 3 1/2 in tall.

The eyes are very reflective and seem to glow in the right light

Beautiful!  Can't even imagine that as detailed a hippocampus as this could ever have been made quickly, and I'm sorry it ended up not being fun for you.  But your time, effort, and determination certainly paid off.  Thank you for sharing another example of your spectacular gifts as a sculptor.
