Painting variations on the night sky has always been one of my favorite things to do and when this little guy insisted on being blue, I knew it was time to break out the stars!
This twinkling little Fat Unicorn is painted a solid navy blue with silver eyes, pearl and gold faux-Appaloosa spots, champagne mane and tail, and gold horn and hooves.
He is coated with several layers of gloss sealer and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth… but he probably shouldn’t go for a swim!
The Fat Unicorns are a resculpt of my Fat Pony mold and are hand-cast in resin from a handmade silicone mold of my own sculpture. I’m still learning how to make molds and how to resin cast, so things aren’t perfect (yet!) and I’ve tried to show off any flaws in the photos.
The magnets used are small round ceramic magnets and they are strong enough to hold up paper on a swinging door, but not cardstock. If you would like a stronger neodymium magnet instead, convo me for a custom pony! 🙂
Unicorns are roughly 2.25 inches from nose to tail and 1.5 inches from hoof to mane. This little guy was cast using the magnet leveling jig and has a slightly raised magnet and a nice flat back.
Fat Unicorns come in a small plastic bag with a handmade tag, but you can add an optional handmade cardstock gift box. They make a cute little gift or stocking stuffer for a horse-crazy human! ?
