Made by Isis
I’m still working on my vintage carousel horse. I still have a lot to do, but I’m getting to a stage where the basic horse shape is there – apart from the head. The first thing I have to do now is shaping the head, and it has already been very challenging to make all those strong shapes and structures of a wooden carousel horse. I’m not entirely happy with the shape that I am giving it now (see pictures), so I will revise that. If someone has a piece of advice for shaping horse heads, or other comments, be my guest – it is really challenging. The next stage is putting paper mache on all of it. Once the basic horse is solid in paper mache, I’ll make the details (the saddle, and other decorations). I know what to do in the coming weeks, hahaha!
