Dianoetic is a ooak (one of a kind) arabian unicorn sculpture made from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature. She is about 10 inches tall to the tip of her horn, and has a body length (chest to bum) of about 5 inches. She has turquoise resin eyes.
When I started making unicorns in 2008 I always did them in super vibrant, iridescent colours but lately have been sticking to natural horse colours. A friend suggested I try something different with this one (I was originally going to paint her chestnut!) and I couldn't be happier with the result. I used interference paint and micro powders so she is super iridescent and changes colours a bit in different lighting. Her hair is a mix of dyed mohair in dark purples, greens, and some blue. She balances on two legs using extra supports that stretch down under the feathering. I've also been practicing indoor photos with some coloured paper, I think it worked out well. The weather has been too gross to risk taking sculptures outside.
Dianoetic was sold before I even had a chance to do proper photos of her, so I'll likely do more unicorns in bright colours in the future! If you are interested in a commission check out my website here: [link]
