How to Make

  1. Draw the shape of the unicorn head and ears in the middle of the rock. Draw stripes around 3/4 of the head in a clockwise direction, leaving a large gap in the top left-hand corner.
  2. Paint the stripes with pink, yellow, purple and blue acrylic paint. Try to make sure stripes of the same colour aren’t next to one another. Leave the rock to dry.
  3. Fill in the central head of the unicorn with white acrylic paint. Make sure it dries fully before moving onto the next step.
  4. Using the gold metallic paint, draw on a gold horn between the unicorn’s ears. Also, use a pale pink acrylic paint to fill in the unicorn’s rosy cheeks. Leave to dry.
  5. Finish the unicorn by drawing on the unicorn’s eyes and mouth with black acrylic paint. Giving it eyelashes and eyebrows will give the unicorn a more fun character.
