Pattern for a Baby Unicorn Sculpture Made with Apoxie Sculpt
Read the details below to learn how to use this pattern to make your own baby unicorn sculpture.
This unicorn would make someone in your family very happy.
Anyone who loves unicorns will treasure it for years. It could even become a family heirloom.
This printable pattern (PDF) comes complete with all instructions needed to create a baby unicorn sculpture of your own. You can make your unicorn with cardboard, foil and either Apoxie Sculpt or air dry clay. I bought one pound of Apoxie Sculpt and it was enough to finish both the Baby Unicorn and his friend the Mini-Bunny, because you use a very thin layer of the product over an armature made with foil.
I painted mine with chalk paint, which gives it a nice soft coat – but any acrylic paint will work well.
This is a fairly advanced project. If you’re new to sculpting you might want to make the Mini-Bunny first, just to get used to building an armature using a pattern and crumpled foil.
The pattern comes with complete instructions.

To make this sculpture you will need:
- A small piece of corrugated cardboard, and some light card stock cut from a cereal box

- Small piece of tape.
- Latex or Nitrile gloves if you’re using the Apoxie Sculpt.
- Sculpting tools (or find anything that works that you already have around the house.)
