« Part 3: Let's Get a Grip Part 4 of Rocking Horse from Grizzly Plan series Part 5: One Last Fillip and Then the Formal Portrait of the Pal O' Mine »

We’re outsourcing the painting of this steed to Grandma, who is so skilled she shouldn’t be required to prime. So I did.

I have found that using a good, flat interior paint, light colored, is very effective. I sand the pine to 180, apply the paint, and then knock it down with 400 grit paper. the resulting surface is a delight to paint upon.

Next: Posing for the formal portrait.
