Carousel horse in resin



I have a few castings of the carousel horse in resin! Yay! We are still working on some molding issues with him, due to the complexity of casting him with his base attached. He should be available for sale very soon, hopefully sometime this week. This guy is not meant to be a model horse, in fact I sculpted him before I rediscovered the hobby in the late 90's. He isn't as anatomically detailed as my models are, and his proportions might be a tad off, but I didn't want to re-sculpt him and possibly lose the feel of the sculpture that I had originally intended. His ornamentations are very detailed, with veining in the feathers of his wings, tassels on his bracelets, and fleur-de-lises on his saddle blanket and browband. He is going to be a blast to paint!








Speaking of painting, I have a Jezebel that is almost completed. She was done in oils, I just need to find the time to finish her up. I really like they way she turned out, and am quite pleased with the dappling I did, the most extensive dappling I've tackled in oils.





Winter arrived in a big way recently, with 2 feet in the first storm and another 8-10 inches yesterday. Todd has been dividing his attention between casting and shipping resins to snow removal and wood chopping. Poor guy! Winter is a lot of work here, but we love it.

That carousel horse looks SO cool - I think this is one I could talk the s/o into letting me display in the house - even before he's painted!

Wow! I am thrilled to see that you've decided to return to this magnificent sculpture. It is such a wonderful work of art, that _we_ the fans of your work can finish ourselves. He'll be such a treat! :-) Will he be available on payments perhaps? Times are tough but I am eager to own a resin by you! :-)

I think you are very wrong about your carosel horse not being anotomically correct. He is perfect to me! You do beautiful work. I much prefer the fiery look of your carosel horse.
What is his size and how much will he be? Would love to have one.
