How to Create a Unicorn
Learn how to turn a regular horse figurine into a unicorn. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

Use any horse figurine you like to create your own unicorn figurine. Polymer clay is ideal for making a unicorn horn, because it comes in colours like white, silver and gold -- usually the colours of the unicorns' horns.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Polymer clay
  • Refrigerator
  • Baking tray
  • Conventional oven
  • Epoxy or hot glue
  • Horse figurine

  1. 1

    Break a 1/2-inch thick piece of polymer clay off of the package and condition it, working it between your fingers to soften. Roll the clay into a ball, and roll one end of the ball across a clean smooth surface, forming it into a long teardrop shape about 1 1/4 inches long and 1/8 inch wide at the base.

  2. 2

    Gently twist the long teardrop shape, starting from the bottom to give it a slight corkscrew. Soften the edges along the corkscrew by carefully pressing them. Put the clay in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to cool so it can be modified without losing shape.

  3. 3

    Press the rounded bottom of the twisted teardrop shape with your finger to flatten it. Place the clay on a baking tray and bake it in a conventional oven for the time and temperature indicated on the package. Remove the clay from the oven and cool for at least 30 minutes.

  4. 4

    Apply a small dab of epoxy or hot glue to the bottom of the unicorn horn and press it against the forehead of a horse figurine for 1 minute to let the glue harden and hold the horn in place. Let the glue dry completely for 24 hours if you used epoxy, and about 30 minutes if you used hot glue.
