Fat Unicorn #16

Fat Unicorn Magnet 016 White and Chocolate Brown - Front - Martha Bechtel

Half of the fun of unicorns is that they can come in any color!

This handsome fella wanted a slightly more earthy look, with the dark bronze-tinted brown to give him some visual heft. Who am I to tell a unicorn no? ?

This dapper little Fat Unicorn is painted a solid white with blue eyes, lightly pinked nose and ears, metallic chocolate mane and tail, gold horn, and champagne hooves.

He was part of the mostly-traditional 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 messy back that he was one of the more relaxed generation of magnets. No point in painting things no one will see! ?

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