After much cutting, soaking, drying, carving, sewing, ripping-out-stitches in frustration, stabbing myself in the hand with an awl and other general work related hazards, the unicorn skin rug is done.
His head form is a bit too small, but I feel like I managed to make him look "unicorny" other than just "goaty." Which is what the skin is, it came from a domestic goat that lived on a farm where someone raises them for meat, milk and pets. She runs her own tannery and is a gifted taxidermist. *Minotaur-Queen
The 'mane' is angora goat hair. Next time I try something like this, I might try hair that stays together better like horse hair, this wool is very curly and nice but it doesn't make for very good long flowy manes.
His horn is a deer-tine that's been painted in gold leafing. It's hard to see, but his hooves have been likewise gilded, and he's got custom-painted blue glass eyes. He's definitely got some problems with the stitching behind his head (mostly covered up by his mane) and doesn't have an attached liner to his leather side, and for that reason I won't offer him for sale, but he is up for a trade.
Just to recoup the pelt itself, I'll say I'll trade it for any taxidermy quality pelt (bigger than an ermine or squirrel, lol) if you can't trade but want to bid, contact me and make a reasonable offer.
