A new Kirin resin! The original was sculpted in plasteline and molded in silicone. These are polyurethane resin casts and are available for purchase now. They measure 9" / 23cm high and can be painted in acrylic, enamel, oils, and pastels.

I've had mine for years now, in my room on my nightstand. I've left it just as is, and I still love it. <3 

I would ruin it if I tried to paint it. xDD Besides, I think it's gorgeous just plain white.

These are so beautiful I want one! Quick question tho, is the tail reinforced somehow to bear the weight of the rest of the sculpture, or is it just resin like the rest of it??

The tail is very thick, it's sculpted (with the hair swirls and such) to appear lighter, but it's a massive chunk of resin and needs absolutely no reinforcement. It would be like reinforcing a torso, just needless. Also, the resin itself doesn't weigh much at all, each piece is only a few ounces, so weight support is not an issue. I've never had one of these come even close to fracturing.
With the kind of resin I use the only things that need reinforcing are dainty things. I use reinforcement in this resin for example: [link]

Ok thank you for the reply, I was just making sure because I've bought resin pieces before from a user on Etsy and had them break very easily on me. It was probably a different type of materials or something. Just getting all of my ducks in a row before I decide to purchase one or not :) Thank you for getting back with me.

Well each one takes about an hour to complete and the cost of the resin is minimal, so they're not really worth more than that, lol. Thanks though!

... I really wish I could just sit in on your studio workings sometime... or know more about doing casts...

currently using one of your sculpturing tutorials, though... maybe one day I'll be as good as you. Doubtful though...

This is, by far, one of my favourite pieces by you. Just saying.

Wow! I love this sculpt. Your detail work really shines in the scales along the back, the intelligence of the face, the delicacy and ornament of the horn, and the flow of the fur.
I guess I better start saving so I can get one of these guys.

These are gorgeous! They also look quite steady, as opposed to some of the rearing animal sculptures I've seen. Well done!

Thanks! They're really sturdy, I've done quite a few upright/rearing sculptures and this is certainly the most steady one, but it has a pretty big base in comparison.

It's really intimidating, there's a big learning curve to moldmaking and the products and equipment are expensive. But if you can plough your way through it it's really rewarding.

I've failed miserably on more than one occasion! I almost did on this- I cast the sculpture forgetting to place all the air vents at the undercuts. Luckily I was able to carve them in afterwards but it isn't always possible.
