Yesterday Jim and I went to Smyrna, Delaware and learned how to pour plaster into the mold masters to make carousel molds. Tracie & Paul Johnston purchased all of the Alberta Carousel Masters and we are gradually trying to fill in our collection. Unfortunately, Tracie is off helping Florida hurricane victims but we had a great time with Paul learning his craft.
So today I added the new molds to our carousel catalog.
New Carousel Critters
We have two new horses, a camel, a rooster, and a polar bear.
This carousel takes the small Alberta Carousel Ornaments. We already had the canopy, but added the pedestal and the round base. Check out the Carousel Ornaments page to see what we have that goes on this carousel.
This carousel takes the MB (music box) size carousel horses and other animals. It is shown with the center round base and first ring which holds 5 animals. The next picture has two rings (10 animals) and the last picture has three rings (17 animals). We are waiting for one last mold to be shipped (after election day but before Christmas). Then we can pour this for you. You may have seen the carousel Jim and I made many years ago sitting on the pool table. It has two rings ~ we bought the greenware for it and the animals at Red Barn (which is no longer in business).
He we have the Organ Grinder with his Monkey and the Balloon Man.
Alberta has a few other accessories as well, such as a man & woman on a bench and a ticket booth. We will probably add those molds later.
Where having Fun is why we come!
So come on over and make a carousel ~ for yourself or for a gift.
Or buy a gift certificate for a friend to come and make their own.
