Postcard from Nancy

                                                              Kinsley, Kansas

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.
