How To Make A Rainbow Unicorn - Making The Horn

This post will tell you how to make the horn for your unicorn

Step 1

Roll a blob of epoxy putty

Step 2

Now make the horn. Make it by rolling the blob in your hands, roll it more on one side than the other to create a conical shape. Now twist it round in circle to create the twisty shape of the horn:

Step 3

Now add a small amount of putty to the forehead of the horse. Flatten it down.

Step 4

Use water or smoothener to smooth it down so that it is nice and smooth against the horse

Step 5

Now place the horn onto the centre of the horse and smooth down the edges with the milliput you have added using a sculpting tool

Step 6

Now leave your model to dry

How To Make A Rainbow Unicorn - Prepping For Hairing

This tutorial will tell you how to prep the model ready for hairing.

Step 1

The first stage is to remove the main and tail. Use your dremel tool to saw off both the tail and mane. Then sand down both so that you get a smooth base:

Step 2

Now fill any gaps (particularly those by the mane) with epoxy putty. Once dry sand it down so that it is smooth.

Step 3

Now drill a small hole into the horse in the centre of where the dock would be:

Step 4

Now get a piece of wire that is wide enough to fit your hole snuggly. Place a small amount of glue on the end and stick it in. Bend the wire so it forms the shape you want your dock to be

Step 5

Now take some epoxy putty and wrap it around the wire into a conical shape to form the dock. Try not to make it too thick or your tail will end up looking too bushy, at the same time don't make it too thin or it won't  be strong enough

Step 6

The final stage is to drill a hole along the top of the neck. This is where you will put the hair for your mane so make sure it is as long as you need it to be for the mane

Make sure you sand down the groove so that it is smooth.

Your horse is now ready for stage 2!!!!!!!!!!!
