heh that's one big dime! lol I used to be able to work really small, like the things were smaller than a person's pinky nail, but then I wasn't in 6th grade with tiny fingers anymore. Your work is truly amazing!
I thought I was the only nutcase trying to make the smallest unicorn. Not that you are a nutcase. Nice clean attachment of the horn, by the way. I had trouble sticking the horn on mine, I kept squishing the bass of it. Perhaps I should pre bake the horn and than attach it with liquid clay? I had the same problem trying to attach the hair with out the roots looking all squished. She's so SHINY, but you couldn't have sanded her... how did you get the shine? Just sealer?
Tiny unicoooooorn!!! I dunno somedays I definitely feel like a nutcase
As for the horn, yeah you could try pre-baking. I've done this so many times I've just gotten really good at it... so I don't really know what to tell you about squishing it...I have really small fingers so maybe that helps?
You really just need a super light touch when attaching the hair, and your clay needs to be the proper consistency. Too soft and will always smoosh, too hard and it just sucks to work with.
I just make sure they are as smooth as possible and clean as possible before baking. They have several coats of glaze applied to them afterwards, so that is why they are so shiny
Both! All my charms are sold with the persons choice of necklace, keychain, or phonestrap. I don't have any micro unicorns in my shop at the moment, but I will probably make more after the Christmas rush is over
