Carousel Update

I added a few more pictures to the Carousels page today. We recently acquired the giraffe mold for the Music Box carousel and will pour it shortly.

Here are the MB Carousel Horse with Eagle Saddle and the Carousel Ostrich, I just finished painting them last night after class. Laura is nearly finished with her Lead Horse. The Alberta Music Box size Carousel Collection is nearly complete. See MB Carousel Horses We do have a similar size in another brand and will start pouring them next to see if the two styles are compatible.  There is a choice of bases: the oval base is for a single piece and there is a curved wooden floor base that makes a circular carousel if you have many to display. All animals are mounted on a carousel pole. A music box can be added to the oval base and wound with a  key. The animals to not rotate.]

I finished painting the Heartland Carousel Ornament Collection last night during class. There are six of them: Unicorn, Dragon, Elephant, Pegasus, Wedding Horse, and Rose Horse. They are each about 3″.  See Carousel Ornaments.
