Hand sculpted from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paint. The hairs on the coat were meticulously painted one by one, they even follow natural hair growth patterns and swirls. No molds were used in the making of this sculpture nor were any made. The mane and tail are made from mohair.
 
She is 7 1/2 in tall at the highest point and about 6 1/2 in long.
 
I don't remember when I started painting her, but I have been working on painting her since before I finished the black unicorn foal I made in 2012, not to mention the time it took to sculpt her. To have worked on her for so long she was a real labor of love to create. I think that she is my favorite unicorn that I have sculpted so far. Cheesy




Lol she looks like a hair model in this photo  Grin



Her foal and another unicorn I sculpted




I am hoping that the frost sticks around until tomorrow, so that I can get some glittery, wintery pics of her outside.

Flawless execution and very lifelike--outstanding work!  I could see your equine creations being used as props in a high fantasy movie.

Very realistic! I thought it was a painting at first.
