In this post I'll show you some glass unicorns from the Glassblobbery. This one has been sand blasted to make it frosted then coated with platinum, which gives it a strange gray sheen…

Now normally it seems there are two types of unicorn, these are the Seventeenth century unicorn (lions tail) and the modern unicorn (horses tail). I’ve made some of each, so below are some pictures. The yellow metal is gold. The pink one is caused by applying gold, which is fired in a different way.

Here’s a pink version:

The last unicorn in to days post is a spun glass one, again the pink is created by using gold.
