I made the mane from 2 pieces of fine white cotton material from which I removed the cross threads, making two fringes of different lengths. I then cut back the material to leave each fringe with a remaining 3mm piece of weave, which I laid and glued each strip into place along the forelock and crest line. Then modelled paper clay on top to hide all joins, so as the mane looked as if it naturally grew from the neck, I added a few golden threads in later, and did a similar process with the eyelashes except on a much smaller scale.

Ok Here is the next bit, They are made from Eberhard-Faber White paper mixture, which is lovely to use, air dries and can be added to, at any time, helping with the modelling process, well it does suit my funny ways, anyway.:) I drilled holes for eyes, set and modelled round them, & drilled holes for the wooden handles.
I modelled these three before my trip into hospital, they are at the first stage of becoming batons. They are the Unicorn, from the Unicorn and Lion fighting, The White Rabbit, and The Cheshire Cat, Next step is find appropriate eyes to set and drill holes for them and the wooden wand handle.
