This is going to be part of a carousel that we are doing for an Applebee's restaurant.
There is a history of carnivals here in Kinsley. From about 1900 to the 1970's at least three carnivals called Kinsley home. There's even a carnival museum in town. So it's neat to be making carousels.
Wood carver Bruice White makes the original horse. A rubber mold is made and then cast in plastic. The casting is filled with foam and then buffed and finished. That's when I start painting them.
