Step – 3:
Carefully form an oblong shape with the flattened clay from the previous step with the help of your fingertips.

Step – 4:
Take green colored clay and cut tiny slices from it (6 times smaller than the slice used for the head). Knead each slice to make a roll and then flatten the roll as we did before.

Form a basic leaf shape with the flattened clay and then use the back side of the x-acto knife to trace patterns on the clay leaf. Make about 4-5 clay leaves.

Select a color for the flower and cut out a slice of clay (same as the leaf slice). Knead well and then roll the clay on a flat surface until forming a pipe like pattern.

Cut out a slice 2 times more than the amount used for the ears and form the horn pattern with it. Use the back side of the x-acto knife to trace patterns on the ears and the horn.

Step – 10:
Cut tiny slice of black clay (this amount may vary). Knead and roll the clay to create a pipe like pattern. Cut out 2 same sized pieces from the black clay pipe for the unicorn eyes. Cut out 6 thinner pieces but relatively of smaller length than the 2 previous pieces.
