Alpha Unicorn Detail by jshapeshifter Alpha Unicorn Detail by jshapeshifter
This piece was created using a steak knife and a safety pin, it was "dubbed" the Alpha Unicorn by a close friend and art teacher who really wasnt sure about sculpting unicorns, Thanks to Chris Hood.

Alpha Unicorn Detail by *jshapeshifter is both beautiful and graceful, from the details of the fur and flowing hair to the penetrative gaze, it makes it hard to believe this was created solely with the use of a steak knife and safety pin. ( Featured by Thebuild )

You created this wooden unicorn using only a steak knife and a damn safety pin. O.o Serious talent chickie. How much would it cost to have something commissioned by you? Definetely interested if I got the cash. XD

Wow so intricate and delicate! Wonderful work, it reminds me a lot of those stylized suns (I have a bathroom decorated with them) I wonder what a counterpart "moon theme" would look like! =)

Hi, Jack! I'm starting a new small sculpt today, and I'll be using the same razor and pin I used last time. Large paper clips for an armature, too. I was afraid to start a new one without a set of dental tools, special wire, etc. :)

I do wish I had a heat gun and toaster oven, though. But I'll get by without them, I'm sure.

Heat guns are great! I use one very often. Just be careful not to burn your piece, it happens very fast. Be sure to let me know when you are satified with and show it to me. And feel free to read my DA Interview, the link is on my profile page. Good luck!! Talk to you later, jack
