Fat Unicorn #14

Fat Unicorn Magnet 014 Chestnut Blanket Appaloosa - Back - Martha Bechtel

Need a spot of fantasy to liven up your fridge? How ’bout a whole bunch of spots! ?

This handsome little Fat Unicorn is painted bright chestnut with faux-Appaloosa spots, four white socks, a skunk tail, and champagne horn and hooves.

He was part of the not-your-normal unicorn explosion that I painted in September of 2019 for that year’s UCP craft fair. I was having a blast of a time coming up with all the colors a unicorn could be (as well as a bunch of more traditional white).

You can tell by his back that he was before I’d thrown in the towel on painting the offsides of the magnets. He doesn’t have the full black back, but he’s got a lot more color than his counterparts.

He was cast using the magnet leveling jig and has a slightly raised magnet and a nice flat back.
