Silver Kirin by Sunima Silver Kirin by Sunima
sculpture made as an experiment at my school. 
What you can see at the sculpture is made with fimo and Cernit. (some plastic clay stuff) 
It was really hard! The legs kept breaking in the oven in the end of it. And the horns... AND the hairs!
I cannot say i recommend working so big with this material... D:
But it was still a fun experiment and i learned a lot from it. hopefully

Sprayed with metallic silver car spray.

Absolutely beautiful! The kind of thing that makes a person pine for a tangible fantasy world :)

Did you use some kind of tool for the hairs? They are all so uniform in size and shape! I have only worked with fine porcelain clay so far and to do what you have done here would be very difficult (mainly the hair) but doable. The result looks wonderful! I too have been the victim of sculptures not surviving the kiln process. :( It has happened more than once after so much hard work... so now I take pictures of my work before I send it to the kiln... just in case so that I at least have something to show for my work. Thank you for sharing!

Wow, congratulations. I hadn't checked deviant art for a long time and I've just seen you're experimenting with new styles. I really like your artwork. Hope I get to see an exhibition of yours one day; I just moved to Denmark so I'm close to Norway.

Oooh, beautiful! I know it's probably all the same shade of silver in real life, but here the texture on the hair and scales really makes it look darker there. You did an amazing job with this medium - the hair must have been incredibly hard to do, but it turned out extremely realistic. :)

This is amazing. The attention to detail is amazing <3 

How did you learn how to create the frame and everything? I really love things like this and would love to learn, but I have no idea where to start. :3

you could have used super sculpy, it's great for big projects, it only comes in one color though (tan)
