Aphelion IV by scenceable Aphelion IV by scenceable
This is "Aphelion" (named after the Tristania song), a white and silver male kirin.

Aphelion is a ooak (one of a kind) hand made unicorn or kirin sculpture. He was made entirely from scratch from polymer clay over a wire and tin foil armature. He is about 11 inches long fron front hoof to the tip of the tail, and about 8 inches from the ground to the tip of his antler.

I haven't made a lying down horse or anything in ages. It was difficult but I love sculptures in lying down poses, I would make tons if it wasn't so hard. Ah well, practise practise. I had intended to make a white furry kirin for a few months now, so it's nice to have him done.

His eyes are "rain" coloured 5mm equine pupil eyes from Dreaming Tree Studio (they are inset and made of resin). The hair is cashmere goat fur, which I had never used before. I enjoyed making the antlers especially, you will see more of them in the future!


Aphelion is on ebay right now! The auction starts at $0.99 with free shipping. Please check it out! [link]

You can keep up to date with new sculptures of mine on my facebook page: [link]

I hope you like him! :dance:
