Beside the fact that I find that strange, I really like the way you mounted the horse!
Haha, awesome! Very rare indeed.
That is a fine looking unicorn
Is that it's real horn or an artificial one. I ask because all the unicorns I get in have a more curved one than the one you did. It might be the area harvested depends on straight vs curved. ;D You did an awesome job on that one.
That really is a nice job, but like Tanglewood, your horn detracts from the beauty of the work. It tends to luck like a skinny dunces cap on that beautiful mount. Why not create one with some epoxy putty and a dowel. The spiral horned antelopes - even the black buck- are great references.
I can't believe they didn't let it grow up a bit. Bad unicorn management in my book. Doubt that thing would even make Pope & Young, lol.
Nice mount, I may have to do one of those next time the neighbors horse gets into one of my food plots. Wonder if the police would believe me when I tell them that's not there horse, did theirs have a horn, lol.
Love everything but the party hat horn...... I give it an 8 3/4 on a scale of 10!!
I see what you mean by the horn in the pictures, I don't know if its the flash but it does look better in the flesh, id only ever seen them with a narwhal tusk and wanted something different. Ive made a mould of it and will try different colours and textures because it only screws in with a M6 thread, thanks for the comments and if anyone has some good reference photos of unicorns horns I may need them.
LOL, after seeing this post I started thinking about how I would do it. I think if you were to carve the basic spike shape out of high density foam, insert a metal rod then use sculpting epoxy over the foam you could get whatever look you wanted.
Another idea I think would look really cool would be to find something the shape you want, like the horn you have for example, and cast it. Then pour a clear casting resin and just coat the sides a few times and leave the inside fairly hollow. Then paint the outside very lightly how you would like it to look and put a light bulb on the inside.
Capercaillie I may have a unicorn reference. I mounted my unicorn with a bleached blackbock horn.
Shore make a good towel rack ;D
Looks like a narwhal skewered it up the ..... ???
Here ya go!
(I actually have a copy of this book. It was a gift, and the photography is absolutely gorgeous - even if I still remain just a little bit skeptical.)
Looking at Nancy's book, I believe you nailed that look.
I think it looks good.
That's funny Nancy! I have that Book at home ;D
For me,it was the wolverine that csame in.
